How did the Spanish defeat the Incas and the Aztecs?
|Q:||Ask a Question about How did the Spanish defeat the Incas and the Aztecs?|
They did not use steel, and had no defence against Spanish swords and crossbows.
Horses were unknown in Central and South America, and at first the Native Indians thought that man and horse were one monstrous creature.
The Spaniards brought with them devastating diseases such as smallpox, which ravaged these peoples.
They had no resistance to the smallpox virus, and millions of them died. The Native Indians often offered no resistance to the Spanish advance, becoming totally demoralized at the collapse of their ordered society.
