Geneticists were able to trace in the ecclesiastical archives of the genealogy of the rulers.
In the myths of the ancient Incas, it is said that the rulers of the Empire came from southern Peru and from the shores of Titicaca, the birthplace of the Sun God. The study of the genome of descendants of rulers helped to confirm the veracity of the legend of Manco Capac, the.
Scientists believe that the Inca Empire was the first state on the territory of modern Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Chile and Argentina. According to legend, its founder was Manco Capac in the thirteenth century, who came “with the Sun” from the shores of lake Titicaca, the birthplace of the Sun God.
Geneticists were able to trace in the ecclesiastical archives of the genealogy of the rulers and obtained tissue samples from 19 people from 12 families who are relatives of the founder of the Inca Empire. For comparison, experts have identified the fabric 282 people living nowadays in the territory of the former Empire, and, in addition, was used 1,200 genomes of people obtained by other scientists.
As it turned out, 19 people whose genomes were studied, there was a common relative on the paternal side, who lived near lake Titicaca and the present city of Puno. But they have another common ancestor in the male line, who lived 12 generations before, near the site of the founding of the Inca Empire in southern Peru.
