1. Oxford University Was Built Before the Aztec Empire
Oxford University, a world-leading center in learning and research, is the oldest university in the English-speaking world. While most would think that the Aztec Empire existed before any university, they are wrong. The Aztec Empire was thriving in the 15th century until Hernán Cortés and the Spanish conquistadors took over in 1521.
Although no date is known for when Oxford University was formally established, some date teachings from the university in the year 1096, before the Aztec Empire existed.
