High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! During the 7th and 8th
centuries in Mesoamerica, there is an evident shift in the roles
women played in ancient Maya society as compared with the previous
two centuries. It is during this time that there was a great deal
of political complexity seen both in Maya royal houses as well as
in the Maya area. Warfare was a significant factor in political
competition and marriage was one of the ways that alliances were
made between the different polities. This was accompanied by a
shift in women's roles from wife and mother to playing integral
parts in courtly life, such as participating in rituals involving
the supernatural world and at times ruling individual polities.
