I apologise for butting in with a question, which isn't the main purpose of this community, but I figured someone here might have an idea of where I could look.
I'm working on a historical fantasy set among the Aztecs, and I have hit a slight snag...
I'm looking for the date of death of the Aztec Emperor Axayacatl. I know the year, but what I need is the precise day or at least month, in either the Aztec or European calendar. Does anyone have any idea of what it is (or where I could find it, failing that?) I know Aztec history is a bit patchy, and I was wondering if I couldn't find it anywhere in my books simply because we don't know it with enough precision.
Done so far: read through "The Aztecs" by Nigel Davies, "Handbook of Life in the Aztec World" by Manuel Aguilar-Moreno, and "The Aztecs of Mexico" by George Vaillant, without much success. In desperation, also googled "Axayacatl date of death".
Thanks in advance! (I know this is a really nitpicky one)
EDIT: got a date (well, half-made up one). Thank you so much for the help!
