Hernán Cortés and the Montezuma Treasure

The Noche Triste Treasure

The Noche Triste Treasure is recorded among the texts of the conquistadors as having been real. When the conquistadors attempted to flee Mexico, it is known that they carried large swathes of treasure with them. Much of what they took appears to have been recovered. Some had been tossed into the, now drained, Lake Texcoco. For almost five hundred years, rumour has abounded that large swathes of the treasure remain hidden, be it in Mexico or another part of the world. Whether true or not, is unclear.

To this day, the treasure has never been found!
