Statue of the last Aztec emperor, Cuauhtemoc
The photo shows the statue, by engineer Francisco Jimenez and sculptor Miguel Norena, which was unveiled in 1887 on the Paseo de la Reforma, at what is now the intersection with Avenida de los Insurgentes. The names of Cuitlahuac and Coanacoch are visible on the pedestal. Not shown are the additional names of Cacama and Tetlepanquetzal. These four were allies of Cuauhtemoc in his resistance against the Spaniards and were executed alongside him at Campeche in 1525.
