This is the original Pen & Ink drawing by Barrie Linklater.

An illustration of Hernando Cortes and his men desperately resisting daily Aztec attacks within the Palace of Montezuma, their stronghold. Cortes led an expedition that caused the fall of the Aztec Empire and brought large portions of mainland Mexico under the King of Castile, in the early 16th century.

Cortés was part of the generation of Spanish colonizers that began the first phase of the Spanish colonization of the Americas. Note some slight ink drop in the top right corner of the drawing.
