Manco Cápac I, (Wechu: Manqu Qhapaq, "the royal founder"; b. 1640 AN) also known as Ayar Manco (Wechu: Ayar, "great"), is the founder of the Wechua Nation, the first independent and sovereign state for the Wechua, a native people of Keltia. He currently serves as the first monarch of the Wechua Nation (since 1658 AN) and more importantly, King of Alduria-Wechua (since 1685 AN).
Manco Cápac ascended to the newly created throne of Alduria-Wechua due to his sustainably high popularity among the Wechua and Aldurian people. To help secure wide and virtually immediate legitimacy for the new Federation, the Committee for Alduro-Wechu Integration offered the crown of the Federation, which he readily accepted.
Manco Cápac was born in Parap, the capital of the Wechua Nation, to Sapa Wechua Sinchi Roca and his Queen Mama Cura. He is the eldest of five royal siblings, he had four sisters. He was educated privately at home by a group of 15 teachers, scientists, and philosophers mostly from Alexandria, Hamland, and Ashkenatza. He began undertaking his duties as Crown Prince at a remarkably early age (15), often credited to his rigorous private education. In 1659 AN, he married Princess Alexandra of Alexandria, with whom he has three children: Crown Prince Titu, Prince of Rimarima; Princess Nayaraq, Princess Royal and Duchess of Bassumorto; and Prince Tupac, Count of Arequipa.
Manco Cápac succeeded his father, Sapa Wechua Sinchi Roca, after his death in 1685 AN. As part of the greater constitutional settlement that brought the Wechua Spring to an end in 1663 AN, he has reigned largely as a constitutional monarch, interfering in politics only to ensure the protection of the Constitution and the survival of the Wechua people. On many occasions, he has served as an able and effective ambassador abroad, using the advantages of the monarchy to help secure favorable treatment and sometimes, even good faith from the most ardent of foes. However, the King does not stray from national policy and often undertakes diplomatic missions within strict parameters and protocols determined by the Department of State.
Between 1668 AN and 1673 AN, a period known as the Wechua Sorrow, Manco Cápac led an emergency government-in-exile in Nivardom, Constancia after the country descended into chaos and instability due to the White Plague. With the support of the Raspur Pact and Alduria, the government-in-exile returned and established control over the Wechua ancestral lands around Mount Lacara, Keltia. The period starting with the return of Manco Cápac to Parap and ending with the last year of the Second Five-Year Plan (1684 AN) is commonly known as The Restoration.
Manco Cápac has faced anti-monarchical sentiments, as well as blistering press criticism (in particular from the notorious "chicha" press). These were particularly acute during the Wechua Spring and the Wechua Sorrow. His popularity has recovered significantly since the Restoration, however. He is currently seen as a national "founding father" figure (especially in the Wechua Nation). His personal popularity, along with support for the new federal monarchy, remains high as of 1688 AN.
