"El estandarte real y la mascapaycha" offers a historical reconstruction of Inca nobility in colonial times, specifically studying the twenty-four electors of the royal Inca alferez. Throughout the colonial period, this council represented the Cuzco indigenous elite's perpetuation of existence and identity. This work, based on extensive archival documentation, covers and analyzes all the phases of development of this colonial Inca institution.
