AXICOAT, a Zutuhil king, one of the sons of the Quiché king, Axopil, flourished in the 11th century. Axicoat, being ambitious, declared war against his brother Jintemal, the Cakchiquel king, and their father had to mediate between them to restore peace. But just before Axopil died he gave his Quiché kingdom to Jintemal, which caused a new and terrible war with Axicoat, both wishing to possess all the territories near the borders of Lake Atitlán.
