As a group, these changes consistently reflect Chimalpahin’s sociopolitical orientation, as well as his intimate knowledge of Nahua communities in central Mexico. An alternative hypothesis would be that another author became Chimalpahin’s doppelgänger by replicating his procedures and appropriating his name. However, no extant evidence provides support for such an elaborate possibility. 21 The extent of changes introduced by Chimalpahin is both massive and heterogeneous, thus this discussion is but a brief introduction focusing on four issues: changes that characterize Chimalpahin’s major concerns as an annalist, his additions about Nahua history and culture, his perspective on the Spanish conquerors, and his linguistic and orthographic usage as a native speaker of Nahuatl.
