Can Pech is a small, two province tribal kingdom located in the southern panhandle of the Central America region. They were historically the Mayan nation to first come into contact with Flag of Spain Spain when in 1517 a Spanish ship docked in Campeche City to trade for some water. Initially the two people treated each other in a friendly manner. This all changed when in 1527 permission was given for an invasion of this region of Mesoamerica. Spain's first invasion began in the east and by the time they reached Can Pech their forces were so badly battered they had to issue a retreat. A second invasion was attempted directly on Campeche City thereafter which resulted in a small victory, but the remaining forces were too weak to defend against a reinforcement of 20,000 Mayan troops that were sent afterwards and found themselves pushed out of the city again. It wasn't until 1540 that a final invasion was mounted after Spanish diplomats had persuaded Can Pech's leaders to swear allegiance to the crown, and due to the unexpected nature of this invasion the Spanish were able to fully conquer the area.
