  Antonio de Mendoza - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Don Antonio de Mendoza, conde de Tendilla, was the first Viceroy of New Spain, serving from 1535 - 1550.
His difficult assignment was to govern in the king's name without making enemies with Hernán Cortés, whom Charles and the Council of the Indies judged too rough to be made a duke and given a higher post than the Captaincy-General of New Spain, a post for which he was well suited.
After three high-ranking noblemen declined the appointment, it was accepted by don Antonio, who was born in Granada of a high-ranking family, who had served capably as Spanish ambassador to Rome.

He quelled numerous revolts, notably the insurrection of indigenous peoples in Nueva Galicia (called the Mixtón War) in which Pedro de Alvarado was killed.
By fostering expeditions, especially those under Marcos de Niza and Coronado, he pushed exploration far northward.

 Chapter 5: The Mendoza Family in the Spanish Renaissance 1350-1550
In 1502, María de Mendoza, daughter of the count of Tendilla, was betrothed to a distant cousin, Antonio de Mendoza, eldest son of the count of Monteagudo.

Mendoza prepared a hand-written pleading entitled "Cross-complaint of defendants and plaintiff" which is dated April 11, 2000 and file-stamped by the Ogemaw County Clerk on June 21, 2000.
However, one insight into Mendoza’s intent can be found on the summons itself where Mendoza avers that his claim "aris[es] out of the transaction or occurrence alleged in the complaint [which] has been previously filed" in the Ogemaw County Circuit Court, referencing the case number assigned to plaintiff’s complaint.
In reading the original complaint in conjunction with Mendoza’s cross-complaint, one is left with the definite and firm impression that a long-standing dispute existed between Mehney-Egan and Mendoza which was punctuated by acrimonious encounters and complaints to local authorities, and which culminated in the acts of violence on August 15, 1998.
