AFP: The descendants of Moctezuma II, the last Aztec emperor of Mexico, are trying to recover the pensions granted them in 1550 and suspended in 1934. The pensions, paid in gold, are now worth $90,000 per person per year. Moctezuma's descendents are demanding the Mexican government resume the payments, claiming they were illegally suspended.
