Don Diego de Castro Titu Cusi Yupanqui (1529–1571) was a son of Manco Inca Yupanqui, and became the Inca ruler of Vilcabamba, the penultimate leader of the neo-Incan state. He was crowned in 1563, after the death of his half brother, Sayri Tupac. He ruled until his death in 1571, probably of pneumonia.During his rule at Vilcabamba, Peruvian Viceroy Francisco de Toledo wanted to negotiate with him. The negotiations were about Cusi leaving the Vilcabamba and accepting a Crown pension.
