Montezuma gave exuberant gifts of gold to the Spaniards, which excited their appetite for lavish goods rather than assuage them. Shortly after, Cortes learned the men he had left at the coast were killed by some natives, and took Montezuma captive, leading the people through him. Cortes then left to address Velazquez who had sent an expedition to oppose Cortes, leaving men in
100 years later The Greater Columbia then collapsed. As a result, Ecuador became independent. There was a lot of corruption in the newly established government, causing a lot of revolts. Due to the revolts, in the first 130 years, there was a total of 48 presidents. Conservatives were in charge until the 1895 revolution.
Recently a new trend has been spreading throughout grocery stores, Pizarro flavored pizarolls, these are specially made in spain and shipped to Peru where they are considered to be destroying Peruvian cuisine and blamed for the growth in spanish culinary influence in the region. But all jokes aside Francisco Pizarro has performed some of the most horrific acts in South American history, born in Trujillo Spain to a poor mother and little education growing up illiterate. Francisco Pizarro was responsible for the demise of the Incan Empire, he claimed their land for the Spanish. Pizarro was a man of many accomplishments, they may not be good or nice, however they are still accomplishments, such as settling the first spanish settlement in Peru in the year 1532. Without the actions of Francisco Pizarro Spanish influence on South America would not be as strong.
But Atahuallpa threw the Bible onto the ground. This set off the priest so he called upon the rest of the 168 Spanish to attack. As Jared Diamond explained “The envoy saw the Spaniards at their most disorganized, told Atahuallpa that they were not fighting men, and that he could tie them all up if given 200 Inca” (79). The Inca lost at least 7,000 men in that battle and it was all because they were being cocky and decided to rush into things not even knowing their military strength. So after all these reasons, the Inca lost their battle against only 168 Spaniards because of their leaders ignorance, the Spaniards military advances, and their use of a very effective ambush.

Francisco PIzarro: The Notable Conquistador that Vanquished the Incan Civilization This famous Spanish explorer passed away on June 26th, 1541, when he was assassinated in Lima, Peru. The cause of his assassination was due to the big disagreement between him and his long time expedition partner, Diego Almagro and how because of this disagreement, he had Almagro killed. This caused many people in the Almagro family to become aggravated of Pizarro’s foolish decision of killing his expedition partner. Years later, on June 26th, 1541, several of Almagro’s followers, whom were led by Almagro’s son, stormed and raided Pizarro’s grand palace in Lima, Peru. Pizarro, being circa the age of 70, remarkably managed to kill 3 people before drawing his
In my opinion, I think the United States Government did not let Geronimo return to Arizona because he is a legend and he can start a war on the United States army like what he did when the army of the United States killed a dreamer. He killed the solders and he took most of the men, women, and children with him. Also, I think if he returned to Arizona he can revenge and revenge his people like what he told Mr. Gatewood that he did not learn to do anything except to revenge and always will get revenge. That’s was after a year when his wife and his two girls killed by the Mexican army. He killed more than 50 soldiers in his way to the Mexican border.
Back in the 1400s, if you weren’t a Christian, it meant you were against them. So when Pizarro saw Atahualpa`s reject the holy book and throw it to the ground, Pizarro used that as the reason to start the attack because that meant they rejected Christianity and Pizarro did not like that. You only had one choice, Christianity or Death. In the Incan Empire, the Spanish destroyed a culture because they rejected Christianity and to save himself from death, the ruler gave them all the gold and silver from his land. The ruler had later refused to convert to Christianity completely and the Spanish killed him for this.
A group of military officers launched a coup d’etat, or a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government. The coup failed; however, organizers escaped capture and established the first guerrilla forces, vowing to overtake the government. The guerrillas were angered by social repression and political decline. They would not gain a large following among the people until 1978. Several indians were recruited by guerrilla groups, and joining an anti government group lead them to question several injustices against them such as their poverty, segregation from society, or the hard farm lives they lived.
The city was expanded by Pachacuti Yupanqui and his descendants Toca Yapanqui and Huayna Capac. Capac’s sudden death happened right before he named a new successor and this raged the nation until spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro and his army arrived in 1532 (Machu Picchu). Dr. Burger states, “This mortuary pattern is not surprising, because if members of the Inca elite had dies while residing at the country palace, they would have been transported to their principal residence in Cuzco rather than being buried at Machu Picchu.” (Lost City). Although, it is still unknown how they got the tools to work the hard rocks into grand temples, fountains, and many other structures, it is still impressive that they mastered the art of smelting and alloying soft metals (Schriber). The buildings, ritual chambers and garden’s were all arranged with Inca culture in mind.
Portilla points out how wary this made the Mexicas about their new “guests” and how they immediately reported what they saw to their king. By the time the Spaniards marched all the way to the Aztec metropolis, Tenochtitlan, they had created several allies. Portilla explains that the people that sided with the Spaniards were enemies that had been conquered by the Aztec. The Mexica’s began to resent their “gods” and mistrust King Motcuhzoma for letting the Spanish conquistadors wreak havoc among the natives and their customs. Before long the author begins to describe the many battles fought between the Aztec warriors and the strangers.
During the exploration of the new world, Europe killed lots of people in the name of finding gold and/or land. They built cities in the name of their country. In the article in states that Cortes conquered the Aztecs killing thousands of people. Then Pizzaro did the same thing, but instead with the Incas when he conquered that people. Both of these people committed these atrocities in the name of Spain and their country.
After the Spanish regained control of Cuzco, Manco Inca (The Inca Emperor) and his armies retreated to the fortress where he successfully launched attacks against Pizarro based at Cuzco and even managed to defeat the Spanish in an open battle. However, the Inca Emperor knowing that he could not fight a war in which almost everyone one of his people died from fled to the south in the mountains in Vilcabamba. There they founded a new Inca Empire which would remain independent for some decades. Tupac Amaru was the last Inca Emperor, he would later be murdered and the Spanish would take over Vilcabamba, even the Spanish King didn 't like this final destruction of the Inca Empire and did not want his death. However the Viceroy of Peru killed him
A wily, peasant-born leader, Villa joined with Emiliano Zapata to keep the spirit of rebellion alive in Mexico and harass the Carranza government. A year later, though, Wilson decided Carranza had made enough steps towards democratic reform to merit official American support, and the president abandoned Villa. Outraged, Villa turned against the United States. In January 1916, he kidnapped 18 Americans from a Mexican train and slaughtered them. A few weeks later, on this day in 1916, Villa led an army of about 1,500 guerillas across the border to stage a brutal raid against the small American town of Columbus, New Mexico.
The envoy that Atahualpa sent saw the Spaniards at their most disorganized. Atahualpa remained ignorant about the Spaniard’s conquest due to being illiterate. Pizarro’s organized government gave him an advantage. Pizarro’s centralized government allowed Spain to upgrade their ships and weapons. Atahualpa was an absolute monarch and his capture led to the immediate annihilation of the Incan
