Civil war and smallpox break out in the Inca empire at around 1530. This causes thousands of Incas to die.
In the end, a man named Atahualpa triumphs.
Meanwhile, Francisco Pizzaro arrives and decides to take advantage of the situation.
Pizarro invites Atahualpa to a meeting and places him under arrest.
NOPE!! I'M ORDERING YOU DEAD!
Please man, let me out! I'll give you 20 tons of gold and silver!
With Atahualpa dead, Pizarro nominates a new emperor that would cooperate with the Spanish, but Pizarro was really in charge.
My new best friend (at least in the Americas), I'll nominate you emperor of this place if you'll cooperate with the Spanish
It's a deal. YAY!
DISCLAIMER: the dialogue that was used in this comic strip may not be entirely historically accurate for 2 reasons: I didn't have enough space and we don't really know what happened.
In November 1533, Pizarro and his army took control of Cuzco, the capital of the Inca Empire. The Inca statues, books, temples and other treasures were melted down or destroyed to sate the greed to the Spanish. Thus ends the Inca Empire and most of its culture and history.
