Diego Fernández (c. 1520–c. 1581)

Fernández, Diego (fer-nän’deth). A Spanish-American historian; born in Palencia, Spain, 1520?; died in Seville, Spain, 1581?. He was apparently a soldier of fortune, lured to the scene of Pizarro’s great conquest in the hope of fabulous wealth; the upshot being some fighting experiences, and ‘The First and Second Parts of the History of Peru’ (1571), a warm and interesting, although perhaps partisan, narrative of the subjugation of the Incas.
