Decline of the Incas

The End of a Great Civilization

  The Incas fell because of the man, Francisco Pizarro, a Spaniard who was one of the first men to set foot on  Incan land. He plotted to kidnap the king, Atahualpa and bribe the nation for money. He kidnapped the king and demanded gold and silver for the emperor back. Gold and silver were taken throughout the land and brought to that Spaniard. He melted the first of the money down and demanded more and that was brought to him and it was so much and Francisco killed the last king of the Incas. At the word of that, the Incas ran away. They were still weak from a long civil war.
