The Aztec social system had different classes.
At the top of society was the all-powerful ruler known as the Great Speaker. Just below him were members of the royal family and the nobles, who owned most of the land and ran local government. Royals and nobles were set apart in several ways. They had rules for how to dress, what kind of houses to live in, and what to eat. Priests also ranked high in Aztec society because religion was a big part of daily life. So did very brave warriors. Most people were commoners, including craftspeople and laborers. At the bottom of society were its slaves.
