It is believed that Atahualpa was born for the year 1500, in Cajamarca, now knows as Peru. His parents were Huayna Capac and Tocto Coca. Atahualpa was a respectful person, because to his very early age, he showed the people to be a very intelligent and bravely person. His father and Willac Umu who was the great priest of the Sol died around the year 1525, Atahualpa´s dad delivered the red mascaypacha to Huáscar, who got Cuzco's kingdom and to Atahualpa the kingdom of Quito. Initially there was peace between both kings, but in the king of Huascar there were people that didn´t want him and Atahualpa expanded his kingdom, making big battles and a big loosing of life between those kingdoms.
Huascar also wanted to expand his king. So he called his brothers by dad´s blood to the Cusco, making an excuse of supposedly Huayna Capac's mummy was going to come to Cusco. Noble faithful persons to Atahualpa told him that he should not go, because he could be kill, so Atahualpa send delegates represented him and of course they die with other people.
Atahualpa was convinced by the nobility Incas of Quito and Tumibamba that he had to fight against Huáscar. So a great army was prepared that was in charge of generals Quisquis, Calcuchímac and Rumiñahui, and they also did a ceremony, to put it on a red mascaypacha, for recognize Atahualpa the new sovereignly of Tahuantinsuyo.
At the beginning Atahualpa had many defeats, but this didn´t stop him, on his way to Cusco, in charge of his generals. The most important battle that they had was the battle of Chontascaxas, where the people of Quito took prisoner to Sapa Inca.

But the luck for Atahualpa was ending. In 1532, he allowed the Spanish to go to his territory for meet him for first time between them. Hernando Pizarro convinced Atahualpa to accept his invitation and also for meet his brother Francisco Pizarro, with the promise that he has to return all properties that has taken without authorization.
Days after, the new Sapa Inca was present at Cajamarca's with 200 warriors to kill the bearded ones that supported Huáscar. On the same day, a priest called Vicente de Valverde tried to convince Atahualpa to accepted the cristianism telling him that this was the only one religion of God and to accept the orders of the king of Spain, of course Atahualpa didn´t accept that and he got mad, so Francisco Pizarro told his warriors to attacked them making a horrible fight in which died around 3000 of people. So there, Atahualpa was taken prisoner to Amaruhuasi.
Francisco Pizarro had a brother, he was Hernando Pizarro. During the time Atahualpa was prisoner, around eight months, both made friends. Also during this time, Atahualpa believed that Huascar was going to be king again, so Atahualpa...
