It represents the genealogy of the lords of Tenochtitlan and Tlatelolco, which is also known as the Codex Techialoyan de Tlatelolco. Reading starts at the bottom, where a couple larger representing the marriage of Xolotl and his wife Tomiyauh appears. They linked to them by a red line are 84 lords of different locations in central Mexico, identified by their indigenous names. In a circle are all related to the manor lords Atzcapotzalco. It may be part of the collection of Lorenzo Boturini. In 1893, it appeared in the Emile Dufosse catalogs. In the early twentieth century, it was acquired by Alberto Garcia Granados, who donated it to the Museo Nacional de Arqueologia, Historia y Etnografia, now Museo Nacional de Antropologia. [1]
