The Kingdom of Cuzco
The Vilcabamba State
In Zuidema's view, the Inca rulers preceding Pachacuti are fictitious, contemporary chieftains of Cuzco being presented by later chroniclers as monarchs in a dynasty. Plausible dates for the rulers in the chronicles, in fact, are not found until the accession of Pachacuti in c.1438. Zuidema, 52–3, 122–3, 227–35.
Dates down to Huayna Capac are approximate; for his death in 1524, see B. C. Brundage, Lords of Cuzco (Norman, Okla., 1967), 373.
