Chalchiuitlicue's name literally means "Jade her skirt", but it is usually translated as "she of the jade skirt". She was also known as Matlalcueitl "Owner of the green skirt". This goddess was the wife (in some myths, sister) of the rain god, Tlaloc. She was also said to be the wife of Xiuhtecuhtli, also called Huehueteotl "old god", the senior deity of the Aztec pantheon.
The Codex Borgia or Codex Yoalli Ehēcatl is a Mesoamerican ritual and divinatory manuscript. It is one of a handful of codices that some scholars believe to have been written before the Spanish conquest of Mexico, somewhere within what is now southern or western Puebla, though some scholars also argue that was produced in the first decades after the conquest as a copy of an earlier precolumbian codex. The Codex Borgia is a member of, and gives its name to, the Borgia Group of manuscripts.
The codex is made of animal skins folded into 39 sheets. Each sheet is a square 27 cm by 27 cm (11x11 inches), for a total length of nearly 11 meters (35 feet). All but the end sheets are painted on both sides, providing 76 pages. The codex is read from right to left. Pages 29–46 are oriented perpendicular to the rest of the codex.
