Please note that Gonzalo Guerrero was a Spaniard by birth but he completely assimilated into Maya way of life to include tattooing and piercing himself as was custom in his local Maya tribe. Therefore, the Indígenas Mexico Template has been added.

In 1511, Gonzalo Guerrero was shipwrecked on the Yucatan Peninsula while heading to Cuba.

Accompolishment(s): He married a Maya Princess, Zazil Há (daughter of Nachan Can) and he is believed to be the first (or one of the firsts) to father the Mestizaje Race

Gonzalo married before 1519. His friend ((Aguilar) who was shipwrecked with him was rescued in 1519 by Cortés. Aguilar became an interpreter and accompanied Cortés on his Conquest of México.
