King Lloque Yupanqui
|Other names||Lluq'i Yupanki|
|Spouse(s)||Mama Cora Ocllo Coya|
Family and personality
Mother of this king was queen Mama Cura.
He was weak, but married Mama Cora Ocllo Coya, who was very beautiful.
One interesting note about him is that he was left-handed.
Although some chronicles attributed minor conquests to him, others say that he did not wage any wars, or that he was even occupied with rebellions.
He is said to have established the public market in Cuzco and built the Acllahuasi. In the days of the Inca Empire, this institution gathered young women from across the empire; some were given by the Inca as concubines to nobles and warriors and others were dedicated to the cult of the Sun god. Sometimes they were simply servants.
