About the Pictures Image Gallery
Francisco Pizarro GonzÃ¡lez, 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, 1475â€“1478, or unknown. He was an illegitimate son of Gonzalo Pizarro RodrÃguez de Aguilar (senior) (1446-1522) who as colonel of infantry served in the Italian campaigns under Gonzalo FernÃ¡ndez de CÃ³rdoba, and in Navarre, with some distinction. His mother was Francisca GonzÃ¡lez Mateos, a woman of slender means from Trujillo, daughter of Juan Mateos, of the family called Los Roperos, and wife MarÃa Alonso, labradores pecheros from Trujillo. His mother married late in life and had a son Francisco MartÃn de AlcÃ¡ntara, married to InÃ©s MuÃ±oz, who from the beginning was at the Conquest of PerÃº, 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 HernÃ¡n CortÃ©s, the famed conquistador of Mexico.
