Tupac Yupanqui, Eleventh Inca, one of fourteen portraits of Inca kings
After a series of rebellions by Peruvian natives in the late 18th century, the confidence of the Spanish rulers was shaken. Such Inca portraits were forbidden and many destroyed. Some series were hidden, and this series may be among them. In the nineteenth century, when Peru gained independence from Spain, the Inca portraits again enjoyed popularity.
