So stories of Spanish brutalities against Indigenous Americans are not a legend or "Black Legend", are they?

Túpac Amaru II was the leader of an indigenous uprising in 1780 against the Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire. Although unsuccessful, he later became a mythical figure in the Peruvian struggle for Independence and indigenous rights movement and an inspiration to a myriad of causes in Peru.

Descendants/descendant of the last Inca (ruler, member of the Inca caste) allegedly were transported on to the certain Italian island. By "the last Inca" I do not mean Atahualpa who was at that time a rebel against his brother, a legally recognized Inca. (If my memory is not at fault, Manco Capac Yapanqui.)

The name of the city begins with a letter 'm'.

You don't seem to know what the Black Legend is as it doesn't deny that brutalities were performed. They released an article recently here, you should read it.

The Black Legend simply denies the scope and stent of which some things are attributed to the Spaniards. That doesn't mean that brutalities were not performed, they happen with every invasion. But it's revealing many of the things said by the media and other world powers demonizing the Spaniards, were doing the very same things there where they had colonies (as the Dutch or the British). It's very naive to believe they were being objective when they were doing the same brutalities too.

It's very simplistic and shallow to deny the Black Legend as you did, things aren't that simple but to each their own.
