Tenayuca II
Walled city

About the site
This site is contemporary with Tenayuca I during the period the latter flourished as a ceremonial center, from 1350 to 1521. Tenayuca was closely linked to Tenochtitlan. It was first conquered by the Mexica army in order to be occupied by the Tepanec people, but with the emergence of the Triple Alliance between Tenochtitlan, Texcoco and Tlacopan, Tenayuca fell under the total control of Tenochtitlan. Years afterwards the bond between Tenayuca and Tenochtitlan became even closer as the Mexica imposed family members of the tlatoanis of Tenochtitlan as the governors of Tenayuca.
