PERU: PACHACÚTECS CORONATION

Pachacútec left his father for returning to the victory parade in Cusco, and he was accompanied by his illegitimate brother Inca Urco. On the way a quarrel emerged in the backs between Inca Urcos and Pachacútecs warriors. Some argued that it was an ambush and that there was a fighting, but Pachacútec ignored the tumult….

PERU: PACHACÚTECS KRONING

Pachacútec forlod sin far for at vende tilbage til sejrsparaden i Cusco, og han blev ledsaget af sin ’uægteskabelige’ bror Inka Urco. På vejen opstod et skænderi i de bagerste geledder mellem Inka Urcos og Pachacútecs krigere. Nogle hævdede at der var tale om et bagholdsangreb og at der blev kæmpet, men Pachacútec ignorerede tumulten….

PERU: HE WHO OVERTURNS THE WORLD

Sarmiento described the decision of the 8th Sapa Inca: As Viracocha was now very old, he nominated as his successor his bastard son Inca Urco, without regard to the order of succession, because he was very fond of his mother. With the stamp bastard son, Sarmiento reminded his reader about what was fundamental for him:…

PERU: HAM DER VENDER OP OG NED PÅ VERDEN

Sarmiento beskrev den 8. sapa inkas beslutning: Da Inka Viracocha nu var meget gammel udnævnte han sin uægte søn Inka Urco som sin efterfølger uden at tage hensyn til reglerne for arvefølgen, for han var meget glad for drengens mor. Med stemplet uægte søn fik Sarmiento mindet sin læser om det for ham fundamentale: inkaers…

PERU: THE INCAS DEFENCE FOR ATTACKS

Sitting in Spain, Garcilaso wrote about his Indian ancestors: Since their earliest kings, who were imitated by their successors, they never waged war unless moved by causes that seemed to them sufficient, such as the need that the barbarians should be reduced to a human and civilized existence, or offences and injuries inflicted on their…

PERU: INKAERNES FORSVAR FOR ANGREB

Siddende i Spanien skrev Garcilaso om sine indianske forfædre: Siden de første konger, som inspirerede deres efterfølgere, blev der aldrig ført krig med mindre de af særlige grunde var nødt til det så som for at lære barbarerne en menneskelig og civiliseret levevis eller på grund af fornærmelser og beskadigelser forvoldt af uciviliserede naboer mod…

PERU: INCA AFTER INCA

I am now returning to the early Inca dynasty, back to the time of myths, once in the 13th century, if I have to give an approximate year – if such a number makes sense when I have said that we are going to the time of the myths. About Lloque Yupanqui, the third Inca,…

PERU: INKA EFTER INKA

Jeg vender nu tilbage til det tidlige inkadynasti, tilbage til myternes tid, engang i tolvhundredtallet, hvis jeg skal give et omtrentligt årstal – hvis sådan et tal ellers giver nogen mening når jeg har sagt at vi skal til myternes tid. Om Lloque Yupanqui, den tredje inka, skrev Betanzos: Lloque Yupanqui blev født med tænder….

PERU: ACLLAHUASI

Aclla is Quechua for a Sundaughter. Acllakuna is often translated the chosen women; huasi means house. We are at the remains of the acllahuasi, which Garcilaso described: A quarter of the city of Cusco was called Acllahuasi, House of the Chosen Women. The quarter is between two streets that run from the main square to…

PERU: ACLLAHUASI

Aclla er quechua for en sol-datter. Acllakuna oversættes ofte til de udvalgte kvinder; huasi betyder hus. Vi står ved resterne af acllahuasien, som Garcilaso beskrev: Et kvarter i byen Cusco blev kaldt Acllahuasi, Huset For De Udvalgte Kvinder. Kvarteret ligger mellem to gader som løber fra den centrale plads til Santo Domingo-klosteret, der tidligere havde…

PERU: INCA MARRIAGE

Sarmiento wrote that Sinchi Roca married Mama Cuca from Zañu. One generation before, Pedro Cieza de Leon had written that Sinchi Roca had been married to his sister and that their son Lloque Yupanqui had been married to the leader of Zañus beautiful daughter. Whether both Incas were married to a woman from Zañu is…

PERU: INKAÆGTESKAB

Sarmiento skrev at Sinchi Roca blev gift med Mama Cuca fra Zañu. En generation forinden havde Pedro Cieza de Leon skrevet at Sinchi Roca var blevet gift med sin søster og at deres søn Lloque Yupanqui var blevet gift med lederen fra Zañus smukke datter. Om begge inkaer var blevet gift med en kvinde fra…
