The Lordship of the Incas is the second part of the Chronicle of Peru, by Pedro Cieza de León, and deals with the history of the Incas and the dynasties of Ancient Peru. It was discovered in the Library of El Escorial by the Peruvian historian Manuel González de La Rosa, who prepared an edition for publication in London in 1873. This one did not see the light of day for economic reasons.
In 1880, Marcos Jiménez de la Espada, finally published the work, with the title of Second part of the chronicle of Peru, which deals with the lordship of the Yupanquis Incas and their great deeds and governance (currently known as The lordship of the Incas).
This work narrates the historical events that occurred during the reign of the Inca kings (ingas yupangues or Incas yupanquis), which the author collected in the mouths of the same inhabitants of the Inca empire, among nobles or orejones, amautas or teachers, quipucamayocs and curacas.
It is, strictly speaking, the first comprehensive history of the Tahuantinsuyo, since the chroniclers who preceded Cieza had limited themselves to collecting scarce and scattered data on the Incas, concentrating more than anything else on the deeds of the first Spanish conquerors. Historical critics have been unanimous in considering it a fundamental work for the study of Inca history.
This volume is a selection prepared by Manuel Ballesteros Gaibrois with the purpose of offering a synthesis that contains what are, in his opinion, the key chapters of the work.
