(gärsēlä`sō dā lä vā`gä), 1539–1616, Peruvian historian; son of the Spanish conquistador Sebastián Garcilaso de la Vega and an Incan princess and therefore called the Inca. He grew up in Peru during the turbulent post-Conquest period. He went (1560) to Spain, where he first served in the army and later began to write. His most important work, The Royal Commentaries of Peru (1609–1617; tr. 1871) is a valuable source of information about the conquest of Peru and the lives and legends of the Inca.

Garcilaso de la Vega

 

(called “El Inca”). Born circa 1539; died circa 1616. Historian of Peru. Garcilaso de la Vega’s father was the governor of Cuzco (Peru); his mother belonged to the Incan upper aristocracy.

Garcilaso de la Vega saw military service in Spain from 1560 to 1570. He later settled in Córdoba and took up a literary career. He moved to Portugal in the early 17th century, where in 1605 he published a work about the conquest of Florida. It was here also that the first part of his large work on the history of the Incas and the conquest of Peru was published (1609; second part, 1617). He was sympathetic toward the Indians who had become the victims of the conquerors.

Emerge de las justas reflexiones criticas de Lama la figura de un poeta que no solamente en su propio periodo historico cobra una importancia historica mayor que la que se le acordaba anteriormente, sino de un poeta a quien habria que tener en cuenta al estudiar toda la trayectoria de la poesia espanola, pues dos eminencias del Parnaso nacional con quienes Lama compara al Cadalso poeta son Garcilaso de la Vega y Gustavo Adolfo Becquer.
