Ilancueitl (Nahuatl for "old-woman skirt"; pronounced [ilaŋˈkʷeː.itɬ]) was the first queen of Tenochtitlan.


Ilancuéitl was a daughter of the then ruler of Culhuacán, Acolmiztli, and she married Acamapichtli, the first ruler of Tenochtitlan. She bore no children, so her husband took more wives.

Ilancuéitl charged herself with the education of her stepson Huitzilihuitl.
