Transcript of The Legacy of Francisco Pizarro: The Incas' Conqueror

City of Kings His exploring didn't begin with a large crew or ship with him as captain - he joined a number of expeditions before he could get his chance:
Joined Martin Fernendez de Enciso and they discovered the Pacific Ocean, Pizarro as captain
Joined the new governor of Panama Pedrarias Davila and finally reached the landed gentlemen status with the spoils
Alonzo de Ojeda: Colombia and Venezuela
Cartagena and present-day Northern Columbia His Exploring Begins The Inca empire - the city of the gold. Pizarro and his company step foot onto the empire in the city of Tumbes in 1528, and the meeting was an amusing one. Each had different ways of living. To the Incas, the Spaniards probably looked like aliens. In 1529, the spanish queen gave Pizarro permission to invade the Inca empire and a new devious plan arose. Atahualpa, an Inca, was found as the better military leader, and after he won the Inca civil war he declared himself Sapa Inca. He rarely showed concern to strangers, giving them permission to travel around the empire and even gave them gifts. This was Pizarro's chance to conquer. Incas vs Spaniards Biru: The Land of Gold Pizarro lived on his given land and retired as a soldier afterwards. It was then that he heard rumors of Biru, a great empire to the south. This is modern day Peru. He was certain that he'd find gold and gems - his goal of great wealth would finally be reached. At 50 years old, he was determined to reach it before his death. After a failed expedition in 1522, he joined forces with Diego de Almagro and they become partners. Each had their own function in the expedition, Pizarro as its leader. Their expedition began in November 1524 and they suffered through many native attacks and storms. The Birth of a Future Conquistador Francisco Pizarro was born in Trujillo, Spain.
Plazas, churches, and palaces stood inside its walls - but in the outside stood hundreds of small homes in plain straight lines. The city was abuzz with unsanitary conditions which led to the spread of many infectious and fatal diseases. After the conquer of the Inca Empire, the natives' original traditions were practically stripped from their culture, replaced with Catholic churches and the natives were required to work for money to take care of themselves - a confusing and new way to live. Pizarro cared less about what happened to the Incas.
He was able to take over Cuzco and its treasures and culture in 1535, renaming it City of Kings. It is now known as present day Lima, the capital of Peru. Britney K.
Period 7
3/8/13 The Legacy of Franciso Pizarro: The Incas' Conqueror Francisco's birth was never actually recorded, uncommonly, so his actual birth date is not actually known - but it is believed to be between 1471 - 1475. His mother and father didn't show much interest in him, and the family was generally poor. He never learned to read or write; he began working early.
The jobs he took were enough to provide for the family's food and clothing, but deep inside he dreamed of spectacular wealth, excitement, and adventure. He became a soldier in his teenage years. This Was A Triumph He pulled a nasty trick on Atahualpa; He invited him to dinner and ordered a planned ambush. Of course, Pizarro's side won with more advanced weaponry and Atahualpa was put in prison, put in to trial, and later strangled to death. Pizarro and his company had defeated the Inca Empire. He could finally become the rich man he'd always wanted to be. He didn't hesitate to take the Incas' vast riches but had to share a portion with Almagro, although Pizarro recieved a
far larger portion. Children He called two natives as his "wife" and had four children:
Francisca (1534)
Gonzalo (1535, named after Pizarro's father)
No actual marriage

He was just a soldier without education, but was able to conquer an entire empire and change the culture and religion of a single country. He transformed history. Spanish culture still thrives today in Peru, and 9/10 of people from the Inca region are Catholic. Francisco Pizarro, Conqueror of the Incas.
