Why you will love it?

The Inca and the Conquistador, the new pioneering exhibition at the Musée du Quai Branly brings back to life two figures who helped shape the history of South America. Atahualpa was emperor during the era of the largest Inca empire. At the same time, Francisco Pizarro landed on the shores of South America on a wealth and power thirsty quest ordered by the Emperor Romain Germanique Charles Quint. Thus came the meeting of these two worlds, revealed here through objects, paintings and engravings of the era.

Our Insiders' Article

Inca & Conquistador

The year 1531 marked the arrival of the conquerors on Inca territory and the beginning of a series of events which have shaped the history of Peru. It is through the figures Atahualpa and Pizarro that we see the two civilizations come together in a fight for territorial control as the cultural and linguistic barriers inhibited any discussion. The stories and remains of these two civilizations shown at the Musée du Quai Branly make us understand the duality of Peruvian history.

Layout

The Inca and Spanish leaders first meet on November 16, 1532 in Cajamarca. What triggered their animosity? The story varies depending on the Spanish and Inca tales: did Atahualpa really throw the Bible on the floor? Is it true that Pizarro refused to drink a glass which was served to him? The 120 historical objects in The Inca and the Conquistador exhibition illustrate the decline of the Inca empire and the beginning of the conquest of Peru.

History

Atahualpa was enthroned in 1531 after eliminating all the possible successors to power over the Inca empire. At the same time, Francisco Pizarro, the conquistador under orders of the Emperor of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, lands in Inca territory. This man who derived from the lowest of classes rose up to the highest ranks of the army. It is in 1524 that he started his first expedition to Peru in search for gold, a wealth coveted by the emperor…

Conclusion

If you like outings which are off the beaten track, The Inca et The Conquistador at the Musée du Quai Branly is perfect. A step-by-step explanation will lead you through this fascinating period of Peru’s history. A small drawback though is the language barrier for non-french speakers: there are no explanations in English under each work. Whilst you are there, we recommend you to discover the permanent exhibitions at the Musée du Quai Branly.
