The Codex Mendoza is an Aztec codex, believed to have been created around the year 1541. It contains a history of both the Aztec rulers and their conquests as well as a description of the daily life of pre-conquest Aztec society.

The codex is written in the Nahuatl language utilizing traditional Aztec pictograms with a translation and explanation of the text provided in Spanish. It is named after Don Antonio de Mendoza, the viceroy of New Spain, who may have commissioned it, possibly with the intent that it be seen by Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor and King of Spain.

The codex is also known as the Codex Mendocino and La coleccion Mendoza. It was held at the Bodleian Library at Oxford University since 1659 and removed from public exhibition on 23 December 2011.

The design depicts the first page of Codex Mendoza.
