Once the Castilian troops commanded by Francisco Pizarro arrived in Cajamarca - Peru, an embassy was sent to the emperor of Tahuantinsuyo, Atahualpa, for the emperor to meet with them. In this way the message was conveyed to him who, making a cast of his high degree of divinization, treated them like dogs, making them wait for a long period of time. He agreed to meet with the Castilians the next day; after leaving the Castilian procession, Atahualpa sent twenty thousand soldiers to surround Cajamarca.
The situation was not at all favorable for the Castilian army, since they did not exceed 300 men, in addition to having few firearms, Pizarro was devising a way to capture Atahualpa as Hernán Cortés did in Mexico.
