The Most Evil Man in History?
By David Johanssen
Francisco Pizarro was the storm crow and harbinger that brought about the destruction of the Inca Civilization. In 1528, the Incan king Huayna Capac passed away and two of his sons, Atahualpa and Huáscar, fought for their father’s title. For four years a bloody civil war raged over the empire and in 1532 Atahualpa emerged victorious. It was at this precise moment, when the empire was in ruins, that Pizarro and his men showed up; they were able to defeat the weakened Inca armies and exploit the social rifts that had caused the war. Were the advantages of the Spaniards simply geographic as the renowned author Jared Dimond proposes: guns, germs, and steel—or did the Spaniards have cultural and genetic advantages as well?
