cholera
smallpox
plague

Cuitláhuac, the 10th tlatoani (ruler) of the Aztec city of Tenochti­t­lan, died of smallpox in 1520, shortly after its in­tro­duc­tion to the Amer­i­c­as, and the Incan emperor Huayna Capac died of it in 1527. Some es­ti­mates indicate case fatality rates of 80–90% in Native American pop­u­la­tions during smallpox epi­demic­s.
