After sending away royal appointed governor of the Viceroyalty of Peru, Blasco Núñez Vela and later defeating and killing him in the battle of Añaquito, Gonzalo Pizarro assembled an army of 1,200 men to press claims for the rule over Peru, once belonging to him and his brothers. The new viceroy, Pedro de la Gasca, landed in Peru in 1547, and a contingent of his troops, led by Diego Centeno, was severely defeated at Huarina by Francisco de Carvajal (dubbed the Deamon of the Andes, for his treatment of native Peruvians in his quest for glory and power.)

dbo:abstract
  • La batalla de Huarina o de las Huarinas, enfrentó a las fuerzas rebeldes de Gonzalo Pizarro y las fuerzas realistas dirigidas por Diego Centeno, el 20 de octubre de 1547, en la llanura de Huarina, cerca al lago Titicaca, en el Alto Perú (actual Bolivia). Fue una de las batallas más sangrientas de las guerras civiles entre los conquistadores del Perú. Su resultado fue el triunfo de los rebeldes gracias a la arcabucería usada diestramente por el maestre de campo Francisco de Carvajal, pero no evitó que el bando gonzalista fuera definitivamente derrotado al año siguiente, en Jaquijahuana.

  • La battaglia di Huarina fu un conflitto combattuto nel 1547 tra la Nuova Castiglia ed il vicereame del Perù, nel corso della conquista dell'impero Inca. (it)

Centeno, however, remained successful in retreating in order and later united with the main force under de la Gasca. Ultimately, the viceroy managed to win the cause of most of Gonzalo Pizarro's officers and men, and on April 9, 1548, the pizarrists were finally overthrown in the battle of Jaquijahuana. (en)
