Sapa Incas
(Inca Emperors)

The Inca Empire or Tahuantinsuyu (Kingdom of the Four Quarters) originated in the Cuzco Valley and spread until the Inca state - an extraordinary rigid communistic society with no concept of personal freedom and little intellectual development - covered Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and neighboring areas. The Spanish invasion of the 1530s did not kill the Inca Empire immediately - it lasted in eastern Peru until 1572.
