Manco Inca Yupanqui (c. 1515 – 1544) was the head of the Inca Empire from 1533 until his death in 1544.[1] Though polygamy was common among the upper classes of the Empire, Manco only had one wife and consort, Cura Ocllo, his sister and the mother of his child.[2]

He was considered to have had a great mind for war and won many battles against the Spanish conquistadors.[3]

Biography

In the year 1536, the chasqui Quila discovered an assassination plot orchestrated by Francisco Pizarro against the Emperor, and unsuccessfully tried to warn him.[3] With the help of an Assassin, Gonzalo Pardo, Quila discovered the identity of the traitor among the Inca: her former father-in-law, the high ranking official Tuti Cusi.[4]

Pardo, Quila and her former husband, Ayar, eventually saved Manco, stopping the attempt during Inti Raymi ceremonies and unveiling Tuti Cusi's alliance with the Spanish. Grateful, Manco then promoted Quila as his personal messenger and asked his men to bow to her.[5]
