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 even the Inca himself caught it.

How dare you plot against me!?
At Toledo, on 26 July 1529, the queen granted Pizarro a license "to discover and conquer Peru," which is described as "a rich and fertile land, inhabited by people more reasonable than any other which has so far been discovered." The queen also gave him a salary and a doctor.
Here is this licence to discover and conquer Peru.
Pizarro sent one of his priests to talk to Atahualpa. The priest told him that Pizarro was a friend of God. The Inca's didn't believe in just one God. So, The priest shouted that the Inca's were against the Christian faith and gave the order to attack. The Spanish emerged with their guns and fired in to the unarmed citizens.
Pizarro found out that Huascar had been killed. Pizarro accused Atahuallpa of plotting against him, and put him on trial for treason. Atahuallpa was found guilty and executed. Pizarro marched on to Cuzco and appointed Manco, a young son of Wayna Capac and half-brother of Atahuallpa,the new Inca.
