Los amantes de Tlatelolco

En el año de 1473 ocurrió una guerra entre Tenochtitlan y Tlatelolco, pues ambas ciudades tenían un fuerte espíritu guerrero y ambicionaban el poder y el dominio territorial. Como resultado de dicho conflicto, hubo una gran cantidad de víctimas. Como evidencia clara de dicha guerra, en esta área se encontró un entierro compuesto de más de cincuenta individuos con sus respectivas ofrendas. Entre éstos, destacó el hallazgo formado por una mujer y un hombre de 35 y 50 años de edad. Y debido a que estaban abrazados, fueron llamados popularmente "Los Amantes de Tlatelolco". Pie de dibujo:Además de "los amantes" aquí fueron encontrados muchos otros restos humanos. English:In the year 1473 there was a war between Tenochtitlan and Tlatelolco.
