BOHORQUES, Pedro (bo-or'-kes), Spanish soldier, died in 1667. He served in the army of Peru and made the Indians believe that he was a descendant of the Incas and must reinstate the Peruvian king Dora. He set out to discover the Paititi, a kind of E1 Dorado, also called Jurac Guari (" the white palace "), which was said to be at the borders of Guallago river. He found only a very poor Indian town belonging to the Pelados (" hairless," meaning extremely poor), so called on account of their utmost misery. They proclaimed him sovereign" but he soon grew weary of his miserable kingdom, disappeared from it, and then was made a prisoner by Spanish troops. He was sentenced to death and executed in the city of Lima.
