Peru ¿ History - Conquest, 1522-1548 - Fiction. I. Title. A823.4Blurb:This is a novel based on Historical Fact. The story begins in the year 1532 as the Spanish set out to conquer the Inca Empire, with reference being given to earlier intrusions in the years 1526 and 1527. The episodes of treaty, politics, treachery and mistreatment, handed down by the Spaniards between 1532 and 1544, are made clear, as too are the lives, ways, customs and deities of the natives of Peru. The story is derived from messages known as quipu, and it¿s these that aid a man and a small group of linguists with their different interpretations. All of that said in reference to the Conquistadors and the Inca is absolutely true, and should be considered as historically correct. Considering that the expansion of the Inca Empire was so dramatic, and writing at that time was unknown to them, it is easy to understand how so many of the references researched have come to contradict one another. The twenty odd different languages spoken at the time of the Spanish intrusion is also a substantial enough reason for discrepancies between facts to be evident.

Discover the remarkable history of the Inca Empire...In the space of less than one hundred years, the Inca people expanded from being a small kingdom in the highlands of Peru to becoming one of the largest and most powerful empires in the Americas. At the height of its power, the Inca Empire stretched for more than one thousand miles down the Andes Mountains and the west coast of South America. It incorporated more than two hundred distinct ethnic groups and somewhere around fourteen million people were ruled by a much smaller number of Incas. Inca engineers designed and built an extensive and sophisticated system of roads and created buildings and walls from massive blocks of worked stone. Inca temples were opulent and featured the abundant use of gold, silver, and precious stones. Massive Inca armies won victory after victory as they steamrollered potential competitors. The Inca government controlled every aspect of the lives of its subjects, from the food that they ate to the clothes that they wore. By around 1500 CE, the Inca Empire had reached its greatest extent and looked set to persist for a very long time indeed. Instead, within little more than thirty years, it had been reduced to a small rump state, and within seventy years, it had vanished entirely. This is the story of the rapid rise and sudden fall of the mighty Inca Empire.
