TULANCINGO, 163 YEARS OF HISTORY
Tulancingo, a place where today it is populated by more than 106,000 inhabitants today, has had its history like other cities throughout Mexico, from the years 645 BC it was populated by the Toltecas and from then on they would settle there until 1116 the Toltec culture notably descended the The city was abandoned by the Toltecas at the beginning of the 12th century when the Tollán empire was destroyed by the war and a few years later it was populated again by the rest of the Toltec families and thus Tulancingo was populated again.
Then we go back to the Spanish conquest, exactly to the year of 1525 where Tulancingo was subjected to Hispanic rule and later they would end up staying and populating the city, and thus spent all the time of the viceroyalty like all of Mexico, under Spanish rule.
Moving to the 19th century in times of war, Tulancingo has been a place where battles were fought, exactly in the independence of Mexico, exactly on May 23, 1812 in the independence movement they sighted 12,000 insurgents under the command of Osorno. Serrano, Beristain, Anaya, Espinosa, Cañas, Villagrán and González requesting the surrender of Colonel Piedras who was guarding the Plaza de Tulancingo, when they received no response they broke fire and after six days of fighting they withdrew from the city.
By decree issued on April 17, 1858 by the Governor of the State of Mexico Lic. Cayetano González y Pérez in recognition of the high virtues and patriotism of Nicolás Bravo, the city is called Tulancingo de Bravo.
Tulancingo has gone through a lot over time, thus being one of the most important cities in the entire state of Hidalgo, going through very important events in its history as a city and how it has been forging.
