MICTECACIHUATL (pronounced meek-tay-cah-SEE-wah-tl) is the Aztec Goddess of the dead. She rules over Mictlan, the underworld, with her husband, Mictlantecuhtli. Mictlan is the lowest level of the underworld (there are nine levels), and is where those who died non-violent deaths go. Mictlecacihuatl escorts those who have died to their families, and watches over their bodies. She is also known as MICTLANCIHUATL and the LADY OF THE DEAD, and is especially honored on November 2, El Dia De Las Muertos, the Day of the Dead.
