The following two quotes are accounts of indigenous leaders in the Americas. The first is about the Aztec emperor. The second is about the Incan ruler. Use these excerpts to answer the question that follows: There were many…grandees around the monarch, some of whom held the canopy over his head, while others again occupied the road before him, and spread cotton cloths on the ground that his feet might not touch the bare earth. No one of his suite ever looked at him full in the face; everyone in his presence stood with eyes downcast. The court was filled with Indian nobles, dressed in gaily ornamented attire, in attendance on the monarch…. His dress was simpler than that of his attendants. But he wore on his head the crimson borla or fringe, which, surrounding the forehead, hung down as low as the eyebrow. This was the well-known badge of Peruvian sovereignty [royalty]. Source: Public Domain Based on the two passages, how did the Inca emperor and the Aztec emperor compare? The Aztec emperor was more powerful. The Inca emperor was more ordinary. The Aztec emperor was more respected. The Inca emperor was more generous.
I believe that the Aztec emperor was more powerful since nobody looked directly at him (almost like they were afraid to) and there was cotton cloth on the ground to prevent his feet from touching any dirt which is a big sign of royalty/power.
While the Inca emperor seem more ordinary since he wear dresses simpler that of his attendants even though he is royalty. A sign of humbleness but still ordinary.
Hope I helped you! :) @stefanwolf1
I thought it was B because it does not state the the Inca emporer was less powerful or respected, he was just ordinary, as it says in his simple clothing. What do you think of picking B? @http_yash
Actually know that I think about it I would go for C because people do not look directly at the emperor as a sign of respect rather than fear and since he had a lot of normal people doing stuff like holding the canopy and laying down cotton cloth, it seem that he has a lot of respect in that community besides he does not show his power directly.
This is a pretty hard question tho!!
@http_yash But the emperor of Inca did have respect which is evident when many Indian Nobles attended his presence. His dress makes it seem like he was just more ordinary for me, but it is a very difficult question.
I do not know what to say except to go with your gut.
B and C both do make sense though, but it's very hard to tell. I will tell you what the answer is when I submit.
Thanks for the help.
@http_yash It was B. I got a 100% on the exam.
