|Succeeded by||Lorenzo Maxixcatl|
Ocotelolco was one of the four towns that formed the state of Tlaxcallan. Maxixcatzin was instrumental in forming the alliance between Tlaxcallan and the Spanish force of Hernán Cortés against the Aztecs. Maxixcatl died in the pox epidemic which decimated the indigenous population of central Mexico in December 1520. He was succeeded by his 13-year old son Lorenzo Maxixcatl.
- The Nahuatl name is often used in the honorific form as Maxixcatzin.
