Aguascalientes was a Chichimeca Indian territory. The city was founded on 22 October 1575 by Juan de Montoro as a postal service rest stop between the city of Zacatecas and Mexico City. Although its founders did not envision it becoming a major city, it became the capital of the newly formed state of the same name when its territory separated from the adjacent state of Zacatecas in 1835. It later grew into a strategic link between Mexico City and the mines of Zacatecas, while prosperous agriculture and ranching helped feed Spain’s emerging New World cities. A lesser known fact is that more than two thirds of the local population of Aguascalientes is of European descent, mostly Spanish and French with settlements of French troops in the Valley of Huejucar during the 2nd Mexican Empire.
