WOMEN’S HISTORYMALINALLI (c. 1496-1501 – c. 1529)

Malinalli (also known as "La Malinche" and "Malintzin"), was a Nahua woman and daughter of a cacique. Bernal Diaz claimed that she was sold into slavery by her mother and stepfather while Francisco López de Gómara claimed she was kidnapped by Maya merchants.

Nevertheless, both sources agree that in 1519, she was one of the slave girls given to the Spaniards by the Chontal Maya. Malinalli and the other girls were baptized (with Malinalli being christened “Doña Marina”) and becoming the property of Alonso Hernández de Puertocarrero. She later became Hernán Cortés’ interpreter and adviser and later bore him a son.

Very little else is known about the real Malinalli, but she has taken on mythic status and has been variously depicted as a virtuous lady, as a symbolic mother of a new people, as a traitor and a whore, and as both victim and survivor.

Someone finally managed to put into words why it is I don’t care for classical history.
I do find Ancient Greek history interesting occasionally, but Ancient Rome bores me to tears (WHAT ABOUT MY ETRUSCANS HUH???). I’m not trying to blow it off because I don’t care for it personally, I believe all history is critical and relevant in some way, but ‘stupidly overinflated cultural boner’ really sums up several centuries of literature, history, and art that can’t seem to move past Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire. Like, it fell in 476 C.E. after it had been steadily weakening for years. It’s time to move on, y’all.
That’s also a lot of the reason why I detest academic art and Neoclassicism (except for my main man Lawrence Alma-Tadema, love u babe) because it’s just years and years of scenes from antiquity in oil paint, and don’t even try to get your works shown in a gallery if it’s otherwise. So much creative stagnation and ugh. It just. I guess that’s why I’m so passionate about Impressionism and modern art, because it was basically a big middle finger to all those years of copy + paste art history, and I don’t mean to deride those artists for their works because of course it takes technical prowess to be able to create those scenes, but where is the imagination, the passion, the relevance to contemporary society? Do we really need another painting of Zeus and Hera, or heavily bearded Greek philosophers?
