Pizarro Brothers

Francisco Pizarro led the conquest of the Inca Empire in 1532, but he did not do it alone. The Spanish conquistadors were a brutal, treacherous lot who were only in Peru for the plunder and who only respected strength and power. Pizarro needed men he could trust, and he fortunately had some: his four brothers. Together, the Pizarro brothers brought an Empire to its knees and became some of the wealthiest men in the world. In the end, it came to nothing: four of the five Pizarro brothers died violent, bloody deaths.
