conquestor francisco pizarro, the cathedral

Francisco Pizarro Gonzolez, 1st Marques de los Atabillos (c. 1471 or 1476 - 26 June 1541) was a Spanish conquistador, conqueror of the Incan Empire and founder of Lima, the modern-day capital of Peru. Pizarro was born in Trujillo, Extremadura, modern Spain. Sources differ in the birth year they assign to him: 1471, 1475-1478, or unknown. He was an illegitimate son of Gonzalo Pizarro Rodroguez de Aguilar (senior) (1446-1522) who as colonel of infantry served in the Italian campaigns under Gonzalo Fernondez de Cordoba, and in Navarre, with some distinction. His mother was Francisca Gonz?lez Mateos, a woman of slender means from Trujillo, daughter of Juan Mateos, of the family called Los Roperos, and wife Mar?a Alonso, labradores pecheros from Trujillo. His mother married late in life and had a son Francisco Mart?n de Alc?ntara, married to In?s Mu?oz, who from the beginning was at the Conquest of Per?, where he then lived, always at his brother's side, who held him always as one of his most trusted men. Through his father, Francisco was second cousin to Hern?n Cort?s, the famed conquistador of Mexico.
