    Malinalli’s mythical legacy has solidified her as a key historical figure in the creation of contemporary Mexican national identity. Born into a noble family and later enslaved in her youth, Malinalli was renowned for her beauty and graciousness. These qualities ushered her into the inner circle of the Spanish explorer and conquistador Hernan Cortés.

    As both Cortés’s lover and advisor, Malinalli became the mediator between clashing cultures and thus greatly influenced the Spanish conquest of Mexico. Her greatest legacy is saving thousands of Indian lives by enabling Cortés to negotiate rather than wage total war. Hernan Cortes wrote, “After God we owe this conquest of New Spain to Dona Marina (Malinalli).” Malinalli was born into a noble family in the Paynalla province of Coatzacoalcos, in the Veracruz region of southern Mexico (ca. 1494-1527). When her father died, her mother remarried and gave birth to a son. Although Malinalli was her father’s firstborn and rightful heir, her mother and step-father favored the new baby. So that the new baby would inherit, Malinalli mother gave her away or sold her into slavery and declared that she was dead. Before she became the property of the Cacique (ruler or chief) of Tabasco, Malinalli traveled in captivity from her native Nahuatl-speaking region to the Maya-speaking areas of Yucatán, where she learned that language. history-002During this period, Hernan Cortés had come to the Tabasco coast from Cuba. By the time Cortes arrived, she had learned the Mayan dialects spoken in the Yucatan while still understanding Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs and most Non-Mayan Indians. Having decided to curry favor with the Spaniards rather than fight them, the Mayans gave them food, cloth, gold, and slaves, including 20 women. The girl, Malinalli among them, were baptized in March 1519 she was about to enter the pages of history. She got a name Donna Marina.

    Malinalli quickly extended her linguistic skills by learning Spanish. She earned Cortés’s confidence, became his secretary, and then his mistress. Cortés was often offered other women, but he always refused them, demonstrating his respect and affection for Malinalli.Her linguistic ability assured Malinalli her role as an interpreter but not as his only bed-mate. During the entire Conquest, their relationship was monogamous.

    history-003Although she was just one of many native American women to bear children with Spanish fathers, she is the most prominent, and her son by Cortés, Don Martín Cortés,  is the first ”Mexican,” i.e., a mixture of Spanish and Indian blood, whose name and history we  know ,the first mestizo of historical note. He eventually held a position in government, was a Comendador of the Order of St. Jago.

    history-004Malinalli may rightfully be considered the Mother of the Mexican Nation. Cortes wrote in a letter to the king of Spain, “After God we owe this conquest of New Spain to Dona Marina.” Always, Malinalli served as the voice of Cortes. This symbiotic relationship led to the Indians calling her La Malinche. Bernal Diaz explains they always called Cortes, Malinche, meaning “Marina’s Captain.” Prescott, who’s “Conquest of Mexico” is the best known book written in English rather than translated from Spanish, explains that the name means “Captain’s Woman.” Both indicate that the Indians knew full well that the words they heard were those of the Captain Malinche, not La Malinche’s.

    The Mexican author Gómez de Orozco states that La Malinche “was an instrumental part of [the Spanish] strategy, interpreting in three languages and providing essential information about economic organization, knowledge of native customs, the order and succession of kingdoms, forms of tribute, rules governing family relations, and so on.She became Hernan alter ego. The importance of the ability of Cortes to communicate with Moctezuma played a vital role in the Conquest. Cortes sent message after message, proclaiming that he had come in peace and wished to visit the Emperor only to extend greetings from his own monarch.

    Without Malinalli, sending these messages would have been impossible. Thus, from almost her first day as an interpreter, she helped insure the success of the Spaniards.
