NIZA, Tadeo de, Mexican missionary, born about 1500; died in 1561. He was the son of an Indian cacique, but was converted to Christianity, and became the godson of Father Marcos de Niza, whose surname he adopted. He entered the Franciscan order and was of great help to its members as an interpreter. He wrote by order of the viceroy, Antonio de Mendoza, "Historia del Reyno de Tenochtitlan, y de su conquista, firmada de treinta Seinores de Tlaxcala en Mexico, 1548," which is said to be a very valuable history of the Aztec sovereigns, owing to the author's perfect knowledge of the Indian dialects and traditions. The manuscript is now in the archives of Simancas.
