Who founded Teotihuacan?

If well Teotihuacan didn’t emerge spontaneously from a Pre-historic darkness, the purity of their character of its constructors and the singularity of their works don’t accuse either any direct affiliation, nor allow the responsible ones to be identified of a certain ethnic group

The Frenchman, Desiré Charnay, who towards 1880 put in effect a preliminary excavation in the City of the Gods, he believed it was a Toltec city, like many others that followed him in his investigation. Nonetheless later studies set the start of the history of the Toltec civilization in the IX century of our era and identified its capital, Tollan, with the current city of Tula in the state of Hidalgo. Nonetheless the Toltec hypothesis shouldn’t be left totally discarded. In effect, its mythological chronicles and epics, written in Nahuatl, the Aztecs denominated generally “Toltec” to a very ancient town of which they say to have inherited their religious tradition, and their knowledge in some part. On the other hand, they seemed to have mentioned in repeated times Teotihuacan, and whom for centuries, created the most beautiful funeral masks and the most perfect works of ceramics in the classical period. But possibly there is to be distinguished a more profound sense, and perhaps also alchemist, in the expression of the great artists, that also fits the initiators of the Fifth Sun, the Sun born in Teotihuacan, according to Nahuatl writings , in order to ascend to “zenith”, the center of the universe. The founders of the city of Gods would still be considered spiritually like the era of the movement, much time later. In this case, this is what allows the adventured to think, even though it is extremely brilliant, what the Mexican archeologist Laurette Sejourne has submitted for years, about the Nahuatl mythology and its iconography.

The rest of all the studies, consider that theocratic aristocracy that founded and governed Teotihuacan preceded from another region, probably from the East, maybe from the coast of the Gulf. A Mexican, Jimenez Moreno, for example, and the Frenchman Jacques Soustelle speak of the Totonacas, town settled in the North of the state of Veracruz, close to its old capital, The Tajin, when the Spanish arrived. Definitely, the City of the Gods is still keeping a secret of the identity of the race that transformed it, two millenniums ago, in the spiritual metropolis of ancient Mexico.
