Chichimecacihuatzin II ("Little/Revered Chichimec Woman," Nahuatl pronunciation ) was an Aztec princess of Tenochtitlan in Mexico.

Etymology

The Nahuatl name Chīchīmēcah (plural, pronounced [tʃiːtʃiːˈmeːkaʔ]; singular Chīchīmēcatl) means "inhabitants of Chichiman"; the placename Chichiman itself means "Area of Milk". The word could either have a negative "barbarous" sense, or a positive "noble savage" sense.

Biography

Chichimecacihuatzin was a daughter of Emperor Moctezuma I and his cousin-wife, Queen Chichimecacihuatzin I, after whom she was named.

She was a granddaughter of the king Cuauhtototzin and emperor Huitzilihuitl.
