Miguel Cabello de Balboa (Sixteenth Century)

Cabello de Balboa or Balvoa, Miguel (bäl-bō’ä). A Spanish historian; born in Archidona, about 1525; died probably in Peru, after 1586. At first a soldier, he afterward became a priest and went to America (about 1566), residing at Bogotá, later in Lima and Cuzco. He left in manuscript a history, which was published, 1840, in a French translation entitled ‘History of Peru.’ It treats of the origin of the Incas.
