Yma Sumac

South American - Daughter of Ollanta and Curi-Coyllur. Her mother's father, the Inca, was so angry when his daughter gave birth to a child by a common chieftain that he locked both mother and daughter in a convent. When the old ruler died, Yma Sumac pleaded with the new Inca, Yupanqui, who released them and blessed her parents' union. Also known as Yma Sumac, How Beautiful or How Beautiful.
