Inca war of succession
War between two brothers broke out in 1527. Huascar started the war when he realized that Atahualpa was tactically superior to the armies Huascar owned in Cusco.
How do they lift those 15 tons stones? How they place those stones so neatly?
Manco Inca born in Cuzco in 1516. He died in 1544. He was the son of Huayna Capac. When Atahualpa died in Cajamarca, he became Inca by the Spaniards. He was happy at the beginning being the Sapa Inca. But very soon he realized that he was nothing but a Puppet King, as his movement was restricted and he was guarded all the time. So he decided to revolt against them. Stealthily he organized an army and finally one night they captured Cusco. After several month Pizarro with his comrade Almagro took hold of Cusco. Manco left for valley of Ollantaytambo. Afterwards he left even Ollantaytambo, as it was easily reachable for the mounted cavaliers of Pizarro. Manco created a new kingdom in deep forest at a place named Vilcabamba. After few years he gave shelters to some refugees who were Spaniards and fled from Almagro. Afterwards he was killed by one of them in a brawl.
