Quinatzin (full name: Quinatzin Tlaltecatzin) (kinat͡sin t͡ɬaltekat͜sin) was a King of ancient Texcoco, an Acolhua city-state in Mexico. He was the first known ruler of that city and is also known as Quinatzin II.[1][2][3]

It was Quinatzin who transferred the seat of Chichimec power to Texcoco, relegating the city of Tenayuca to a site of secondary importance.[4]

The father of Quinatzin was Tlotzin Pochotl, and a noblewoman called Icpacxochitl.[5]

Quinatzin’s wife was a Princess from Huexotla, Queen Cuauhcihuatzin,[6] mother of his successor Techotlalatzin.[7] Her grandson was Ixtlilxochitl I.[8]

Quinatzin’s mother-in-law was called Tomiyauh.[9][10][11]
