Under the reign of Moctezuma I, historical texts referring to the Mexica or the people of conquered regions were destroyed and replaced with official Aztec histories. Why might the Aztecs have pursued this policy?

There are several reasons the Aztecs might have destroyed their history. However, the one that would be the most fitting would be the idea that since the Aztecs conquered them, they essentially took their right to have ever existed, and erased their history. This is not unlike certain barbaric tribes that won't be named.
