 Antiquity of Man Inca conquest
However, Atahuallpa was responding in a way that was natural to a man whose views of his country and the world was shaped by the experience of the Andean highlands.
While the Spanish stayed near the coast, their small force was of no concern to the emperor because as soon as the Spanish began to move into the mountains they would be delivering themselves into his hands; this is a view also strengthened by the fact that in Inca circles power was derived from numbers.
Combine these facts with the reality that Atahuallpa had not yet fortified his position as Inca leader and it can be seen why Pizarro was regarded as nothing more than a nuisance and why no attempt was made to attack him and his soldiers.
