ALVARADO, Alonzo d', Spanish soldier, born in Burgos, Spain; died in 1553. As an officer under Cortes, he participated in the conquest of Mexico (1519), and went thence to Peru, where he served as one of Pizarro's subordinates in the subjugation of the [ncas. In 1537 he was sent with 500 men to reinforce the Pizarros who were fighting their brother Spaniards under Almagro in Peru. He was intercepted, defeated, and made prisoner by A1magro before he could join the opposing force. Their soldiers soon killed Pizarro and Almagro, and the strange warfare proceeded between the survivors, Alvarado joining De Castro to crush Almagro the younger. He was lieutenant-general of the force that suppressed the rebellion of Gonzalo Pizarro in 1548, and was made captain-general of Peru, but was vanquished in 1553, and did not long survive the mortification of his defeat.
