Translation from the original text that appears in the photo:
"Peru did not bring good luck to the Pizarros. Juan Pizarro died at the Siege of Cuzco in 1536. Gonzalo, one of the strongest members of the family, incited a rebellion against the King of Spain and was executed in 1548. The only one that survived from the four brothers was, Hernando, but the Peruvian Curse was also part in his life. In 1539 He returned to Spain; however, he was accused of the death of who would have been the partner of Francisco Pizarro, Diego de Almagro, by the "Almagristas" [That is, the Followers and family members of Diego de Almagro]. He Was sentenced and incarcerated in the castle of la Mota, where he remained for 20 years. In 1561. Right after he was freed, he went to live in Trujillo (Extremadura, Spain) were he built what is now Called the "El Palacio de la Conquista - The Palace of the Conquest".
