The Inca Empire was the largest empire in Pre-Columbian America. At its peak in the 15th century, close to 10 million square kilometers of South and Central America was under its control. The word “Inca” derives from the Quechua language meaning “heavenly” or “shining”.

Inca civilization is divided into three periods: pre-Inca, Inca, and post-Inca. The first period stretches from 8000 BC to 1000 AD and includes many small villages that existed in the Andes region of South America. Before the colonists came to this region, these villages traded with each other as well as with other regions in South America.

The second period, which began around 1000 AD, marks the beginning of the Inca Empire. The Inca civilization was based on a force of disciplined and organized soldiers who conquered the people and incorporated them into a great empire. Thanks to these military prowess, they were able to take control of almost all of South America.

While the Incas had control over most of South and Central America, they never controlled northern South America or areas inhabited by the Caribbean, Arawaks, and other tribes with similar cultures.

The last period marks the “post-Inca period” when the empire was captured by Spanish conquerors in AD 1533.
