Despite I think it's hard to have such leaders as Aztecs leaders, I would like if have it. Maybe changing the name of the civilization when it achieve the Hernan Cortez or Benito Juarez era. Or using the name Mexica over Aztecs, because Mexica cover all mexico history.

Yes using the name Mexica instead of Aztec would be better. The Aztec called themselves Mexica, and the name Mexica better shows the transition and legacy of Aztec-Mexico empires. They is also a movement to use more endonym (Local names) instead of Exonyms (Foreign names) so it would fir into that movement if they used the name Mexica in Civ VII

The leaders listed after Cuaehtemoc are NOT Aztec leaders. This issue has been gone around and around on these forums, but the United Mexican States is NOT a direct continuation of the Aztec Triple Alliance Tributary Empire, nor a latter-day iteration of it, even by national self-identity.

That's true, but Gandi and Chandragupta are from completely different nations and empires. Qin Shi Huang and Kublai Khan led two completely different empires. and many other civ leaders are representing empires that wouldn't exist until long after them, or were more local leaders that were part of a nation that never formed into a nation or empire.

I wanted to have leaders from as ancient as I could go up until the modern day, so pulling from Mexico was the best idea for the more modern leaders. Mexico carries a lot of the culture of the Aztec (including their horrible location for a capitol city). I
always thought Mexico was more of cultural extension of Spain than of the Native Americans until I took a trip to Spain, and was shocked at how insanely different the two were. The main symbol of Mexico (the Golden Eagle on a Prickly Pear Cactus) shows the story story of Mexico City/Tenochtitlan.

It's true that Nationalism often makes pushes to make the current country more of a legacy of their ancestors than they actually are, which gives the false imprecation of one continuous people. Sid Meier's Civilization runs on this narrative with one Civilization with one continuing ability from ancient era to the future era.

PS. Diego de Alvarado Huanitzin was an Aztec leader after Cuaehtemoc The triple alliance collapsed before Cuaehtemoc became Tlatoani. Diego de Alvarado Huanitzin was a ruling Tlatoani during the Spanish empire, although he had little power and was more of a figurehead.

I mean at least Gandhi and Chandragupta did have influence over most of the Indian Subcontinent, not to mention that Qin Shi Huang and Kublai Khan were both leaders of a Chinese dynasty, which is why I see that as different.

Stephen F. Austin shouldn't be in the picture for either leading an Aztec, American, or even a Mexican civ.

Benito Juarez, funnily enough, is Zapotec but I still don't see him leading a potential Zapotec civ either.

Lumping together leaders of Mexico, that might not even have actual Mexica heritage, doesn't necessarily sit well with me irregardless of me not wanting this many (modern) leaders to begin with.

I would like to have Benito Juarez leading the Zapotec, since he was also governor of Oaxaca, and Oaxaca is the fusion of Zapotec and Mixtec territoy.
But I understand there is better names to Zapotecs leaders. Despite the fact I don't know the name of none of they XD
But I think is hard fireaxis remember the Zapotecs in Civ7, despite it should be an amazing addition to the game, Fireaxis looks to remember just the Aztecs and Mayas of Mesoamerica. Forgeting the Zapotecs, Mixtecs, Toltecs, Teotihuacan and Olmecs. All should be in this game.
