Hernán Gallegos, and named Villa de Santa Maria de los Lagos.DNA studies of the area of Jalisco are enlightening yet normal for people of Western European descent.The city was renamed Lagos de Moreno in memory of insurgent General Pedro Moreno (1775-1817), who led the struggle for independence from Spain. The old pre-Hispanic name of the city was Pechichitlán or Teziziatlan. It was the great capital city of the Chichimecatlalli Empire, founded by Ahnuvic-VII about 1028 B.C.
