Incan Emperorby Rit Nosotro First Published:: 2003
.Inca emperor, born in Cusco, Peru. Since 1493 until the day of his death he was the ruler of the Inca Empire. Also he extended the limits of his domain by wars in which he commanded the troops. When he died the Empire moved to Quito, (now in Ecuador) in the north and to Atacama, (in Chile) in the south. Huyana Capac decreed that rulership of the Inca Empire should be shared after his death by Huàscar, and Huàscar's younger half brother, Atahualpa. The internal problems and lack of communication that resulted from this division, however, weakened the entire Empire and made it easy for the conquest by the Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro.
