Death of the Inca 1
Francisco's first voyage was an epic FAIL he sailed to the New World , came back to Spain with empty hands so he set another voyage with 160 men and several horses carried on two ships .
He threw down the book because it wouldn't say anything
After spending seven months on Gorgon Island, Pizarro and his men set sail for Colombia and Ecuador.They sailed on until the Indians recognized the coast of their hometown,Puerto Pizarro.When the indigenous people saw the ship coming on the sea they were amazed like they have never seen it before," says Cieza de Leon.
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. Pizarro returned to Puerto Pizarro to find it in ruins and burned-out, ransacked victim of the civil war raging in the empire. Pizarro and his small army marched into the interior.
Atahuallpa asked Friar Vicente what authority he had for his belief, and the friar told him it was all written in the book he was holding. The Inca then said: "Give me the book so that it can speak to me."Atahuallpa held the book next to his ear trying to listen to its pages. At last he asked: "Why doesn't the book say anything to me?" And he threw it on to the ground with a haughty and disdainful gesture.
The Spanish visited the traumatized Atahuallpa in his cell, gave him food, and allowed his women to come to him. It was then that Atahuallpa — now understanding that the Spanish wanted gold — came up with his plan to ransom himself for it.
News came from Quito that one of the Inca's generals had assassinated Huascar. Pizarro accused Atahuallpa of plotting against him,and put him on trial for treason. Atahuallpa was found guilty and executed.Tenochtitlán were among of the greatest wars of resistance waged by natives against colonial powers in the Americas.Unfortunately for the Inca, they had too few weapons,and too few warriors who could use them effectively.
