How about moving the section "List of Viceroys" to a separate article, "List of Viceroys of Peru"? That would be parallel to the way Viceroys of New Spain is handled, and more convenient if all the reader is looking for is "who came when". And it will probably be necessary when the main article is expanded anyway, to keep it to a reasonable size. Rbraunwa 13:03, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

yes it does because it was "asigned" during the 70's, the real ones use squares --Andersmusician$ 02:48, 25 May 2007 (UTC)
There's no "Inca flag", the Incas had no notion of flag thus never had one. The wiphala (or rainbow flag) was a 20th-century invention by members of the indigenista movement. Check the relevant discussion at Talk:Inca Empire --Victor12 02:56, 25 May 2007 (UTC)
I am deleting the reference to the Battle of Ayacucho as being alternatively called "The Battle of Quinua." Many battles names are misnomers due to faulty knowledge of geography at the time they are named (see American Civil War) but this is nothing more than an historical curiosity. No source nor person I am aware of would refer to the Battle of Ayacucho as the Battle of Quinua...even if the combatants were closer to Quinua than to Ayacucho.

"Mandamos a los virreyes que en los guiones no pongan más que nuestras armas reales, ni usen de las suyas propias, ni de ninguna otras, en actos y concursos como virreyes, presidentes, gobernadores o capitanes generales.". "sent to the viceroys in the banners do not put more than our royal arms, not use of their own, or any other, in events and contest as viceroys, presidents, governors or captains general".Traslation.
Jahrbuch für Geschichte Lateinamerikas.p205 "En el Nuevo Mundo el guión fue el símbolo real usado normalmente por los virreyes, como insignia de su poder militar y emblema de jurisdicción" "In the New World the banner was a royal symbol normally used by the viceroys, as their military insignia and emblem of jurisdiction" Traslation.
