9780006945871: The Lost Diary of Montezuma’s Soothsayer (Lost Diaries S)

Humorous historical ‘faction’ in diary format. Montezuma – last Emperor of the Aztecs – lived in a palace and was deemed so holy that he never put his feet on the ground!

His soothsayer or priest was naturally with him every day – from his worship to the Sun God, to his death at the hands of his own people following their defeat by Cortes and the Spaniards. His diary reveals the truth about a powerful emperor and a once mighty empire.
