Inca and Conquistador soldiers

Inca and Conquistador soldiers



By the early 16th century, the Inca Empire had conquered hundreds of other chiefdoms.
Its warriors were formidable. So how did some 200 Spanish adventurers manage to take
down the mighty chiefdom? Part of the answer lies in the horses, iron, and steel the
Spanish had at their disposal.
See how Inca and conquistador soldiers differed in their dress and weaponry for battle.
