The Inca empire It was one of the largest and most important in Pre-Columbian America that developed between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and whose capital was Cuzco, in Peru, the country where the empire originated.
While the Incas originated in Cuzco, the empire expanded into various regions, calling the empire itself Tahuantinsuyo.
It comprised a total of 6 current countries, and a seventh is in doubt:
Brazil (in doubt, it is believed that there are two roads that the Incas could have built on the borders with the Guianas, which would lead to Quito - Ecuador-)
Inca as sovereign
The Inca was the sovereign of the Inca Empire, also called Inca Capac and Inca Sapa, the first being Manco Cápac and the last, Atahualpa.
The seventh, Inca Roca, was the first to use the denomination "Inca”As title.
In turn, the title "Inca"Was used by the"Incas of Vilcabamba", the leaders of the resistance to the conquest of Peru.
It is extremely difficult to dating the reign of the Incas for lacking completely reliable sources. There are a multitude of possible dates according to different authors and chroniclers throughout History, but for ours we will base ourselves on the Pedagogical Folder web, belonging to institutions in Peru and that is the one officially used in that country.
Anyway, although there may be a variation in the dates, the order of the Inca emperors list as the approximation of the number of years they ruled, they are quite clear and the variations, in the latter case, are minimal.
