Tacal was an Itza prince of history.


During the Payit golden age, Tacal was a prince of Tulom-Itzi. When rumors of the beauty of the Payit princess Aliah reached him, Tacal decided that she should be with him, but she was promised to her half-brother Xetl. So Tacal assembled his retinue and devised a plot to strike during the wedding day, where he was among the guests with his parents and most of the Itza nobles, and kidnap her.

On the day of the wedding, Tacal and his warriors managed to kidnap Aliah but only with the deaths of most of his warriors. At last, in revenge, the Payit decided to slay the whole royal family of Tulom-Itzi. When Tacal, still surrounded by Ulatos's armies, saw at a distance the bodies of his family, he killed Aliah out of desperation. Soon after, Payit arrows killed Tacal.

This act signaled the end of the Payit Golden Age.[1]
