  • Smallpox
  • Guess I'll have to die
  • Oh no, i have smallpox
  • Civil War
  • On your knees!
  • Discovering
  • I've found land!
  • Quito resting after battle. No doubt, too, he was weighing up the sinister news of the outbreak of pestilence in the heart of his empire. But he had only moved a short way south when the disease struck his camp. The incubation period of smallpox is only a few days and, in no time, it swept through the army. Many of his trusted generals died, and then the Inca himself caught it
  • Conquering
  • As Wayna Capac's health rapidly worsened, he was asked to name a successor to be ratified by his council of wise men. Sources disagreed on his choice, some said it was his 25-year-old son Atahualpa and others said it was 21-year-old Huascar, Atahualpa's younger brother by a different queen. Fate could not have played the Inca a worse card. The empire plunged into a bloody civil war.
  • Pizzaro Enters Tawantinsuyo
  • The king and his advisers were convinced of the need to sign a deal with such experienced conquerers as Pizarro and Almagro. At Toledo, on 26 July 1529, the queen granted Pizarro a license to discover and conquer Peru, which is described as a rich, fertile land. Inhabited by people more than any other which has so far been discovered. The terms the grant gave Pizarro the governorship of Peru, with the rights to explore and exploit the land on behalf of the Crown and a salary to keep troops and to pay a mayor.
  • Encounter at Cajamarca
  • You again!
  • Pizarro returned elated to Panama and, there, the partners formulated their plan of conquest. He then took a ship to Spain, seeking backers and royal approval. In mid-1529, he was well received at court by Charles V and showed the king Peruvian pottery, metal vessels, fine clothing, embroideries, and small worked pieces of gold, winning the applause of all the city of Toledo.
  • My land now!
  • A year later, Pizarro returned to Tumbes to find it in ruins, a burned-out, ransacked victim of the civil war raging in the empire. Pizarro and his small army marched into the interior. All the way, every day, every hour almost, Atahuallpa received reports about their progress, but the war with his brother Huascar occupied all his attention. Although he debated with his leaders whether they should divert to attack the foreigners, all judged Huascar the greater threat. The Spaniards, after all, were only 160 men.
  • What have I walked into?
  • According to the Inca account, dictated later by the King's nephew, Titu Cusi, there was an immediate failure of communication over the traditional guest rituals of Andean diplomacy, My uncle received them well according to our custom, said Titu Cusi. He offered them the customary welcome of chicha, maize beer, in gold cups. But they poured it away on the floor. Atahuallpa told the Spanish to wait for him in Cajamarca, where they would be given lodging in one of the royal enclosures facing the square.
