COPAHUE (co-pah-oo'-a), Chilian cacique, flourished in the latter part of the 14th century. He made war against all other caciques of his race, defeated them, and became supreme chief of the whole Araucanian people, also reducing some tribes of northern Chili. According to the native historian Pue, in 1380 the Promancos and Pen-cones rose in arms against Copahue, gathered in large numbers, fought a battle in the Aconcagua valley, and were routed, leaving many dead upon the field, and many prisoners, who were horribly tortured. Copahue's cruelties exasperated his enemies and caused them to unite against him, with the aid of some Araucanian caciques. A battle was fought in the Llai-llai valley, in which he perished, and subsequently every tribe regained its independence. The people of his own tribe buried his remains on the top of the highest mountain in the region belonging to them, and the mountain still bears his name.
