Who was Quetzalcoatl the Aztec god?

Quetzalcoatl was the Aztec god of the atmosphere and of civilizing influences.

Besides ruling the wind and sun, he invented agriculture, the calendar, and many arts and crafts.

Sometimes represented as a feathered serpent, sometimes as a bearded man, he was also identified as a priest-king who had sailed away, promising to return.
