Garcilaso de la Vega, the "Inca," was born Gomez Suarez de Figueroa in Cuzco on April 12th, 1539.
Garcilaso repeatedly travelled to Madrid seeking royal patronage and the rehabilitation of his father's reputation, but was thwarted by hostile judges and damning accounts of his father's activities recorded in early chronicles of the Indies.
Garcilaso suggested that the main problem was a series of cultural misunderstandings: the Spaniards were gallant warriors and pious Christians but their failure to learn Quechua and their underevaluation of Inca culture had tragic consequences.

Recuperating Indian traditions in the language of the colonizer, de la Vega's Incan histories are extraordinary testaments to the sophistication and civilization of pre-Conquest Peru.
De la Vega's other work, The Florida of the Inca (1605), is a romanticized and fictionalized account of the de Soto expedition and of native life in Florida at the time of contact.

 Nuns in Peru by Garcilaso de la Vega, El Inca.
The same strict law against the violation of the houses of the Inca's women existed as in the case of the house of the Sun, for the crime was considered to be the same, but it was never applied because no one transgressed it.
This is from Agustín de Zárate, who makes it plain that he had had a full account of the severity of this law.
Those who did not attain the honor of being the king's concubines remained in the house until they were very old, then were given permission to return to their homes where they were treated as we have said, or they remained in the convent until they died.

 BookRags: Inca Garcilaso de la Vega Biography
Inca Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616) was a Peruvian chronicler whose Spanish prose won him the designation as the first classic writer of America.
Inca Garcilaso de la Vega was born in Cuzco on April 12, 1539, the son of Capt. Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega, a scion of a proud Spanish family distinguished in war and literature, and Chimpu Ocllo, niece of the last Inca emperor, Huayna Cápac.
In 1572 the news of his mother's death and the stern measures of Spanish authorities in Peru to suppress her people apparently inspired in Garcilaso a resolve to prepare a defense of the Inca civilization and a record of its vanished grandeur.

They stayed at the house of the famous Genoese Christopher Columbus, because they knew he was a great pilot and cosmographer and made seamen's charts.
The great Columbus accepted the challenge with such courage and zeal that, having suffered others as great and greater (for they lasted longer), he succeeded in the undertaking that gave the New World and its riches to Spain, as was emblazoned on his arms:
The Reverend Father Jose de Acosta also touches on this story of the discovery of the New World and regrets not being able to give it in full, for his Paternity also wanted a part of this narrative, like some modern authors, since the old conquistadors had already disappeared when he visited those parts.
