he Incas were originally a mountain tribe that first appear in the Andes around 1000 CE. With the ascension of Pachacuti to the throne in 1438 they became a strong centralised state that began conquering and absorbing their neighbours, and over the following decades the Inca Empire became the largest pre-Columbian state, covering what is today Equador, Peru and much of northern Chile. When the Spanish first encountered it in 1532 it had just endured a long civil war, which helped the Europeans to destroy it relatively easily, although final resistance was not crushed until 1572.
