Before the discovery of America, Peru was inhabited by many cultures such as Chavin, Paracas, Mochica, Nazca, and Tiahuanaco. Some time later, the land of Peru and part of other territories, such as Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina, were conquered and inhabited by Incas. This Empire was called Tahuantinsuyo.
At some point, the Incas acquired some of the Shadow Gold and registered it in the quipus, an Incan tool used to spell out secret messages that can only be explained and decrypted by quipucamayocs—a group of men in who the Inca Emperor trusted for the explanation of quipus.
Meanwhile, in Spain, Christopher Columbus presented and explained his project -the roundness of the Earth to travel to the Indian territories- to Kings Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castilla, wich was approved and supported by them. In August 3rd, 1492, Columbus sailed from Palos de la Frontera across the Atlantic with 3 ships -Santa Maria, Pinta and Niña-. After four months, in December 12th, they arrived to one of the islands in the Bahamas, thinking it was India. However, he died after making three voyages over, without knowing he had discovered a new continent –America-.
Since the discovery of America, the Spanish Crown has sent several expeditions. In one of them, Conquistador Francisco Pizarro defeated, captured and murdered Inca Emperor Atahualpa. Ten years later, the Spanish Crown established the Viceroyalty of Peru, which included most of its South American colonies.
