Tupac Amaru II


Tupac Amaru II

This design celebrates the life of Tupac Amaru II (1738-1781), the heroic champion of Peruvian independence and indigenous rights.

With Spanish Bourbon rule oppressing the native population, Amaru longed for a revival of the Inca age. One evening he sprang upon the inebriated Spanish Governor, kidnapped him and stirred a passionate uprising.

Amaru’s insurrection gathered popularity, but the betrayal of two of his officers precipitated its capitulation.

This heroic rebellion was the first of many to challenge Spanish rule and Amaru’s romantic legacy continued to inspire many uprisings long after his execution.
