Sorry, my English is very poor. The article says that Isabel Moctezuma became one of the Mexican Indians granted an encomienda and that among the others were Leonor (or Mariana) Moctezuma. Well, Leonor Moctezuma was Isabel's daughter, so she could not be her sister.

Insertion of Controversial Material
User 220.127.116.11 has inserted the same material into the Isabel Moctezuma article twice. I reverted it once, with an explanation, but he or she inserted it again without explanation. The new material substantially changes the content of the article. For example, the new material states that Moctezuma was murdered by the Spanish. The fact is that we don't know what happened to Moctezuma. That uncertainty has to be reflected in the article -- and any statements on that subject should be supported by reliable references. The new material inserted has no references the text of the article now disagrees with the references cited.
I realize that 18.104.22.168 probably fells strongly, for whatever reason, that Moctezuma was murdered by the Spaniards -- and he may well be right, but nobody knows for sure. But stating that the Spaniards murdered Moctezuma is comparable to stating flatly that OJ Simpson murdered his wife without mentioning that he was declared "not guilty" by a jury. You may be certain and I may be certain that OJ was guilty, but, in an encyclopedia article, material has to be presented with a neutral point of view.
My recommendation would be that the material added by 22.214.171.124 be reverted. An alternative would be to simply eliminate any mention of the cause of Moctezuma's death and other non-referenced and controversial material added by 71. But that would impoverish the article. Or the article be tagged for not being neutral, but that would seriously compromise its usefulness to the reading public. Thus, I would ask that the material added by 71 be eliminated, or that a competent editor re-do the material to make it neutral in tone.Smallchief (talk) 09:26, 6 April 2012 (UTC) ____.
the 'Cortés, an unwanted child, and two more marriages' needs revising
i don't like how the passage is written. the person who wrote it assumed that the she consented to have sex with cortez. More than likely, he probably raped her. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Crossovershipper (talk • contribs) 06:32, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
