Cortez was baptized in the Pila of Our Lady of Guadalupe, he himself brought this icon/image to Mexico. I’ve been to Medellin, to the place where he was baptized, it was a Spainish Virgen, Mexicans all think it was MEXICAN lady. How far from the truth! Juan Diego is actually a thumbnail of Hernan Cortez, Chichameca Indians don’t have goatees...!!!
Yes, Cortes was born in Medellin, in the region of Extremadura, Spain. And in that region, there is a statue known as “Our Lady of Guadalupe”, but the image on the tilma in Mexico is different and distinct.
The image in Mexico is two-dimensional, on local fabric (cactus fiber), while the image in Spain is a three-dimensional statue of Our Lady holding the Christ Child. The name “Guadalupe” is applied to both images.
To be fair, there are no known contemporary depictions of Juan Diego, so every picture of him is a purely speculative guess. I have, however, long wondered why he is depicted with facial hair seeing as how native Indians are not known for their ability to grow a beard.
