His son, Pachacuti, and his followers conquer the Chanca. Pachacuti becomes the 9th ruler. Cuzco is his capital. A new name (1438) Starting with Viracocha Inca, the rulers are given the title of "Sapa Inca," which means unique Inca. The Sapa Inca has a council of 4 apus who are each responsible for one-fourth of the empire.
Legend tells that when a sensitive person touches their forehead to the Intihuatana stone it opens their vision in the spirit world. In Machu Picchu there are these types of scared rocks defaced by Conquistadors in other location are untouched at Machu Picchu. Archeologists say that complex was the birth place of the Inca “Virgin of the Sun”. Also that Machu Picchu was an estate of the emperor Pachacuti. Pachacuti means “he who shakes the earth.” He was considered as a national hero in modern Peru.
Hatshepsut was able to ascend to the throne due to the royal blood line and matrilineal lineage which traced back to the start of the Ahmosid’s family although historians questions this on how she was able to ascend to the throne. Thutmose III became king and his sister the divine consort, Hatshepsut settles the affairs of the two lands by reason of her plans in which she would be his regent. Although “regency was customary because Hatshepsut was the King’s great wife” (Lawless). Redford states Hatshepsut probably “Consolidated her position to become king during the regency”. The Red Chapel in Karnak, refers to the oracle of Amun choosing a king in yr 2.
It is evident that Tetisheri had a significant role in the establishment of the 18th Dynasty through her son and grandson. Tetisheri also played the role of adviser and confident to all three kings and evidence of this comes from the funerary buildings and estates dedicated to her by Ahmose I that indicates her status and involvement in events. There is evidence to suggest that she may have acted as regent for her grandson Ahmose after the death of his father and this comes from the Abydos Donation Stela of Ahmose translated by J.H Breasted. Her holding the titles of "King's mother" and "Great King's wife" shows her importance which is further amplified by her wearing the vulture headdress and being the first Queen to do so. According the historians she also played a militaristic role as she supported the rebellion of her son Seqenenre she "spearheaded" the recruitment of troops.
How far do sources 1,2 and 3 agree as to the unfairness of the pre-1832 electoral system? The sources agree as they all talk about the dominance of the aristocracy, for instance, in source source B, it shows that all votes are going to a man called Sir Mark Wood, excluding one vote, which goes to his son. As he has the title Sir, it is probable that he was a member of the aristocracy, and when taken into account the fact that he had managed to obtain every vote, it is very likely that he managed to bribe, or have some kind of influence (by using his patronage) over the voters in his borough. This is exactly the same as source C, as it says it was taken from a diary by Sir Philip Francis. Again, it could be presumed that Sir Philip Francis is also a member of the aristocracy, it also says in the quote that after winning the election, Francis ‘had a dinner at the castle, and a famous ball in the evening.’ Although this isn’t conclusive proof that Francis was a member of the aristocracy, it shows that he was in a very good position, and certainly not an average civilian.
‘Throughout much of Tahuantinsuyu, Inca provincial administration barely disturbed the existing power-structures’. Do you agree? Jamie Duffield Tahuantinsuyu is the term used to refer to the physical description of the Inca Empire. It was composed of around eighty provinces, which were unevenly distributed into four parts. The connotation of Tahuantinsuyu provokes deliberation of its imperial dynamic over the provinces, which were incorporated into it.
The most recognized tribute was the forced upon tribute for the Aztecs to repay Spain. The others form of tribute was the nobles providing goods to the rulers of their locality. The Aztecs then took the form of a state government. The upper class consisted of the nobles and its main leader became Montezuma. The customs of the great city of Teotihuacán were used by the mexica about a decade after the lost of the Teotihuacan civilization.
The Aztecs formed into an aristocracy with a supreme ruler. The Incas were split into four sections which were ruled by governors. The Aztecs were based on an elected leader, while the Incas were based on hereditary chiefs to run the government. This is a vast difference between the Aztecs and the
The reason behind this ritual was to sacrifice the “most perfect” warrior, since he was considered the best overall; you would in turn receive best results from the gods for choosing such a worthy person. One would ask the question, “Why were the heart and head the most important body parts to the Aztec people?" The Aztecs believed that they contained the most powerful divine forces in the world. Teyolia was a special “divine fire” as they stated it. The more social status you hold, the more Teyolia you hold; therefore priests, artists and impersonators of gods usually held more Teyolia.
