By Rob Pierce, updated by Martin Helsdon
One of the most influential shapers of Lords1 history, the Aztec Empire has had a long history of imperial political intrigue, and opposition to the Roman Catholic Papacy. It is also notorius for extending its influence far beyond its American shores in the form of invasions, vice-royalties, refugee states, and other political chaos to Europe, Africa, and Asia.
The Pope and Aztec Emperor have repeatedly struggled for control of the Catholic church ever since Azteca was converted to Catholicism in the 1400s. The two Catholic churches were loosely unified in ????, but that unity collapsed when the Pope supported New Granada's involvement in the War of the Aztec Succession (1649-1662) on behalf of the cowed Aztec Senate. The Emperor seized the assets of the Papacy in Azteca and reinstated the Aztec Catholic Church in 1659 (T166).
Trákonel intervened in the ongoing warfare between the Kingdom of Cuzco and the True Incan Empire in 1694 (T183). The Cuzcans eventually were conquered (1703, T188), thus restoring Aztec rule to the northern Incan territories.
