Its most significant milestone was the foundation of Lima in January 1535, from which the political and administrative institutions were organized. The new rulers instituted an ''encomienda'' system (encomienda), by which the Spanish extracted tribute from the local population, part of which was forwarded to Seville in return for converting the natives to Christianity. Title to the land itself remained with the king of Spain. As governor of Peru, Pizarro used the ''encomienda'' system to grant virtually unlimited authority over groups of native Peruvians to his soldier companions, thus forming the colonial land-tenure structure. The indigenous inhabitants of Peru were now expected to raise Old World cattle, poultry, and crops for their landlords. Resistance was punished severely, giving rise to the "Black Legend". Gerbert in legend thumb Pope Sylvester II and the Devil in an illustration of c. 1460. (Image:Silvester II. and the Devil Cod. Pal. germ. 137 f216v.jpg)Gerbert was accused by his enemies of having studied magical (magic (paranormal)) arts and astrology at the Islamic cities of Córdoba (Cordoba, Spain) and Seville and even at the University of Al Karaouine in Morocco. Bubnov dismisses as a fable the story that Gerbert travelled to Cordoba and says nothing of any further travels to Seville or Morocco. Nicolaus Bubnov, ''Gerberti, postea Silvestri II papae, Opera Mathematica (972–1003)'', Hildesheim, Georg Olms, 1963, reprint of the Berlin, 1899 edition, p. 383, n. 32. A more favorable evaluation of "the legends around Gerbert's voyage to Spain" that grew from "a mere scrap of dubious source material" is given in Oscar G. Darlington, "Gerbert, the Teacher," ''The American Historical Review'', 52 (1947): 456–476, see note. 28 This gave rise to legends that portray him as a sorcerer in league with the Devil. There have been other Popes who were suspected of sorcery, for example John XXI (1276–77) and Benedict XII (1334–42). Pope Gregory XII (1406–15) was questioned about magical practices in 1409 at the Council of Pisa. WikiPedia:Seville commons:Sevilla

(File:Treiso near alba italy.jpg) Ampelographers believe that Nebbiolo is indigenous (Indigenous (ecology)) to the Piedmont region though some DNA evidence suggest that it may have originated in Lombardy (Lombardy (wine)). In the 1st century AD, Pliny the Elder noted the exceptional quality of the wine produced in Pollenzo region located northwest of what is now the Barolo DOCG zone. While Pliny does not explicitly name the grape responsible for these Pollenzo wines, his description of the wine bears similarities to later descriptions of Nebbiolo-based wines, making this potentially the first notation of wine made from Nebbiolo in the Piedmont region. The first explicit mention of Nebbiolo dates to 1268 where a wine known as "nibiol" was growing in Rivoli near Turin. Oz Clarke ''Encyclopedia of Grapes'' pg 155-162 Harcourt Books 2001 ISBN 0-15-100714-4 This was followed by a 1303 account of a producer in the Roero district described as having a barrel of "nebiolo" (sic). In the 1304 treatise ''Liber Ruralium Commodorum'', the Italian jurist Pietro Crescenzi described wine made from "nubiola" (sic) as being of excellent quality. In the 15th century, statutes in the region of La Morra (La Morra (wine)) (in what is now the Barolo zone) demonstrated the high esteem that the Nebbiolo vine had in the area. According to these laws, the penalties for cutting down a Nebbiolo vine ranged from a heavy fine (fine (penalty)) to having the right hand cut off (Amputation) or hanging for repeat offenders. In 2004, Maier wrote an autobiography with his friend and former publicity agent, Knut Okresek. The book, ''Hermann Maier: Das Rennen Meines Lebens'' (in German (German Language)), dealt mainly with his stunning recovery from the 2001 motorcycle accident.

Fea was born in Turin, and became an assistant at the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale di Genova the Museum of Natural History in Genoa. He made several foreign trips to collect specimens, including visits to Burma (1885) and the Cape Verde Islands (1898), islands in the Gulf of Guinea (1899 1900) and Portuguese West Africa. He spent four years in Burma, accumulating large collections of insects and birds. He then planned an expedition to Malaysia, but his poor health made it necessary to choose somewhere with a drier climate, hence his visit to the Cape Verdes. He was disappointed by the amount of wildlife he found there, but was still able to collect forty-seven species of birds, eleven of which were new for the islands. His collections are in the Genoa museum. Bologna, Italy, is famous for its porticos. In total, there are over 45 kilometres of arcades, some 38 in the city center.

A later genealogy (Nominalia of the Bulgarian Khans) claims that the Dulo clan is descended from Attila the Hun. As Kubrat is mentioned in the Orkhon inscriptions and if John of Nikiu's "Quetrades" is indeed Kubrat, it is also likely that they were somewhat related to the Ashina clan adopting its Tamga, though it seems that Dulo not only broke off from the royal Ashina clan, but became totally opposed to it, manifesting it not only in opposition to the Khazar Kaganate (Khazar) headed by an Ashina kagan, but also demonstratively not using the name. The Dulo clan name descends from the Dulo (Tiele (Tiele people).
