  • He told the king of Cool you Akane a Cheeto metal that he'd marry his daughter.

  • This was no small thing after all.

  • Who'd steal a post.

  • He was a powerful god.

  • He was also a bit conniving.

  • Once he and the daughter were at the temple presumably to tie the knot.

  • Godzilla Post instead, flayed her.

  • This wasn't anything to do with being jilted at the altar or immediately upset the king.

  • You see, once the skin was flayed Godzilla pastilles, demanded that the skin suit be worn by one of the priests according to scholars.

  • This meant that she actually became one of the Aztec gods.

  • The goddess of fertility.

  • What was dead was born again?

  • Fair enough.

  • But poor old king Aceto mellow turned up at the temple a bit later thinking he would watch his daughter marry a God.

  • What he found instead was some old priest wearing the skin of his daughter.

  • Suffice to say he was rather disturbed.

  • It said that he only just caught a glimpse of the Maccabees site as he lit some incense.

  • After that, he ran back to his own people and declared war on the Aztecs a battle in suit and for a while it looked as if the Aztecs were going to lose.

  • Then one night while sleeping, one of the leading Aztec elders had a dream and in it Godzilla pastilles spoke to him, he said in the morning, rise up and seek a cactus.

  • Standing among the reeds on.

  • It will be perched an eagle pecking at a cactus fruit.

  • Remember that dead son go peel?

  • The cactus had grown from his heart thrown into the lagoon.

  • Godzilla post, he said, this is now your place, this is your city.

  • This is where you'll stay and it's where you'll do battle with any intruders.

  • It became Tenochtitlan The next day the elder led his people to the lagoon and just as the God had promised an eagle was pecking at the cactus, the eagle even acknowledged with the kind of head bump that they arrived at their holy place.

  • No one was going to mess with them now.

  • Not for a while anyway, a certain Spaniard named Hernan Cortes put an end to their empire many years later.

  • But we're not done with Godzilla posted just yet.

  • This was some tough god and he didn't suffer fools gladly.

  • You could also say he went overboard now and again.

  • How he came to be is one hell of a story.

  • His mother, the goddess, the creator and destroyer, wore a skirt of snakes and a necklace containing human skulls, hearts and hands.

  • She also gave birth to the moon and the stars for that reason as well as her fashion sense.

  • She was one hell of a woman as the legend goes.

  • One day, she was just going about her business sweeping the floor of the temple when a ball of feathers floated over to her.

  • How it managed, we don't know.

  • But the feathery ball landed on her and made her pregnant thing was she already had 400 sons and one daughter.

  • That daughter Khalil's Schalke didn't take too fondly to seeing her mother pregnant again.

  • Kawasaki, being the leader of the band of brothers, told them that their mother had dishonored them by getting pregnant.

  • Kawasaki and the brothers hatched a plan to kill their mother.

  • It was then that Hutzell pastilles, just an embryo in his mother's womb.

  • Heard about the plan as the brothers and sisters walked toward their unsuspecting mother, Godzilla pastilles suddenly flew out of her like a man on a mission.

  • He was fully formed and more than ready for battle.

  • The brothers scattered.

  • But Godzilla post got a hold of his sister.

  • This is what happened next.

  • According to the old text he pierced Coolio Shockey and then quickly struck off her head.

  • It stopped there at the edge of kota Patel and her body came falling below.

  • It fell breaking to pieces in various places, her arms, her legs and her body each fell.

  • Some sources we found said he killed every last brother.

  • Although we can't be sure of some of them survived.

  • Another legend has it?

  • That hard steel pastilles through Kaleo Shockey's head into the sky.

  • It stayed there became the moon.

  • The dead brothers were also cast aloft and they became some of the stars.

  • This is a violent tale.

  • But apparently who supposedly did that?

  • So his mother could be reminded of her once large family.

  • Every time she looked into the night sky.

  • As you know, the Aztecs did quite a bit of sacrificing for their gods.

  • It's not surprising when the foundational stories are that brutal.

  • When human sacrifices were made of the great temple, their unfortunate folks would have their hearts ripped out while they were still alive.

  • The bloodied figure would then be thrown down the temple steps until it stopped at an image of qu xiao qi This was a kind of re enactment of the old tale.

  • The Aztecs made sacrifices to appease the gods to win battle to try to ensure their crops didn't die.

  • What else could they blame for all the things that could go wrong?

  • Well when it didn't rain or it flooded.

  • Who could be to blame?

  • But the rain god, he was to look, no rain meant no food.

  • So sacrificing a human or two didn't seem like such a bad thing to the Aztecs.

  • Even Aztec creation myths for brutal as the story goes, the world had been destroyed five times.

  • It was during the third time called the third Son.

  • That a god named ted scott lee polka stole to luke's wife.

  • So she castle a beautiful god of love.

  • This of course, enraged to look and it became the reason for the end of the third Son.

  • Instead of using his powers to give the world rain to look, covered the earth with fire after that.

  • The gods had to get busy to make a new world.

  • You have to wonder now, how did they get things going again?

  • Well, the Aztecs had quite a few takes on the creation of the universe and none of them were very scientific one.

  • Such creation theory involved a god named nana Watson.

  • He was said to be a humble god and also a very ugly god.

  • The Aztecs wrote that his face was full of source with that in mind.

  • If someone had to take one for the team, it was going to be nana Watson in order to create a new sun.

  • One of the gods had to throw themselves into the flames, thereby powering the sun.

  • Nana Watson said, okay, fine, I'll do it.

  • He sacrificed himself, but there still wasn't enough power.

  • So the other gods ripped out their hearts and along with their blood, they threw them into the great fire.

  • This power of the universe.

  • Now you can see more clearly why the Aztecs had a thing for tearing out hearts, the blood that pumped through a human body.

  • They thought pumped through the universe itself or what they saw as a universe.

  • There was in general, a lot of blood and guts and it seems that Aztecs weren't squeamish at all.

  • Take for instance, his story involving the God Zito Tech, he was the god of spring.

  • So he represented growth and the much needed new crops every year.

  • But remember the Aztecs related the human body to matters of the earth, That's why they called the spring the new growth like a new skin of the world.

  • You know, it's coming.

  • We imagine when Zito Tech was depicted by the Aztecs, he was always wearing human skin on his body, he was around during a period called take a ship like this came second in the main rituals of the Aztec year and it stood for the flaying of men.

  • Not only would human sacrifices mean people were going to have their hearts torn out, but their skin was also removed.

  • The skins were then died a golden color and worn by priests.

  • The suits were called Tukwila Cometo, which meant Golden close.

  • Other victims were merely shot with arrows, Their blood being allowed to drip while the people sang the song in honor of zipper to check the blood represented the falling rain.

  • And so when they made these sacrifices, they believed they were due a rainfall.

  • If that's not brutal enough for you remember the rain god Blalock.

  • It was believed that when the young folks were sacrificed to him the more they cried, it meant the more rain would fall.

  • So if the Aztecs really wanted a heavy shower during a particularly dry period, it was better to make the sacrificial lambs crime.

  • More speaking of young folks, they were sometimes used to honor the gods, but some of you might have passed on the offer had you been around in those days when the Aztecs wanted to honor the god Scotland polka, they would pick out a mail boy for an entire year.

  • He would wear only the finest clothes and jewelry.

  • He was treated like a god and had eight servants and attendants all day every day.

  • If people saw him and we mean anyone, they looked upon him as a great deity.

  • Life could not be better for that year.

  • 20 days prior to the year ending, he would be married to four young women and they would stay with him in his bed.

  • This represented a fertility period for the last few days there was singing and dancing and general merrymaking.

  • But then the big day arrived, the boy was led to the top of the temple steps where the flutes that had been playing were broken over his body and you guessed it, his heart was removed.

  • This might sound obscene to you, but one historian wrote, sacrificial victims mounted the bloody steps of the pyramid with dignity and pride.

  • After being sacrificed, their bodies were eaten by some select diners.

  • That scott lee polka was one of the most important gods.

  • He stood for a lot of good things in life, but he also stood for a lot of bad things.

  • After all, the Aztecs knew there was good and evil.

  • There were hard times and easy times.

  • There was light and dark pain and the absence of pain that scott lee poco represented these two sides of the coin.

  • One legend we like that features him is when he came down to earth as a warrior in disguise, he arrived at the town, but the locals didn't much take to him and plotted an attack.

  • That scott lee polka saw right through that of course, and being a trickster came up with a really sneaky way to get his own back on the people.

  • He started singing a song and it was a great tune so great that everyone couldn't resist dancing to it.

  • But this wasn't some five minute number.

  • The song just kept going on because that scott polk had the power to sing for eternity if need be, those people just kept on bogey until they get dangerously close to the edge of a cliff.

  • One by one, they all fell off, still humming the tune.

  • Sometimes he'd come back to earth, a skeleton.

  • He'd roam around during the night and when people saw him, they'd see a pile of bones.

  • But with a beating heart still inside, he then tell them this.

  • If you can tear out my beating heart, I will make sure you live the rest of your life with riches were not sure if anyone actually managed to pull out the heart, but being the trickster he was, we imagine it wasn't an easy feat still.

  • That scott lee poco was also the patron of the damned orphans and slaves.

  • So maybe he had changed a few lives for the better.

  • We now think you probably had your fill of bloody tales.

  • So we'll leave it there now you need to watch most brutal human sacrifice techniques throughout history or have a look at a different kind of horror walled up alive.
