The Inca Empire (or Tawantinsuyu in Quechua) was the largest empire in pre-Columbian America. The administrative, political and military center of the
Incas was located in Cuzco. The Incas arose from the highlands of Peru sometime in early 13th century. From 1438 to 1533, the Incas used a variety of methods, from conquest to peaceful assimilation, to incorporate a large portion of western South America, centered on the Andean mountain ranges, including large parts of modern Ecuador, Peru, western and south central Bolivia, northwest Argentina, north and north-central Chile, and southern Colombia. The Incas identified their king as "child of the sun."
