Mention the Spanish conquest of the New World and the names of illustrious Conquistadors come to mind: Hernán Cortés, who brought down the Aztec empire; Francisco Pizarro, the conqueror of Peru; and a host of grim-faced, bearded men in breastplates and steel bonnets who made the perilous Atlantic crossing in the 16th and 17th centuries in search of plunder and glory.
