Granted it was the Aztecs that Cortes first invaded, but yeah, what a story.

For those who do not know the history, they worshiped a being known as Quetzalcoatl and it was long believed that one day Quetzalcoatl would have a second coming and return. Cortes and his army invaded them and they thought that he was Quetzalcoatl so they started bowing and worshiping him. While there were doing that, the army went around slaughtering them.
