Civil war between Huascar and Atahualpa, dimished the nation of a population between 8 and 10 million. When
the Spaniards discovered the New World in 1532, they fell to Pizarro and his men. They captured the emporer
Atahualpa and killed him after they received the massive ransom.
The conquistadors did not use much force as the diseases they brought to the New World killed off the majority on the
indigenous peoples. Their unique culture was almost completely erradicated and replaced by the Spanish culture and religion.
