The Spanish Imperial Governorate of New Toledo was formed from the previous southern half of the Inca Empire, stretching south into present day central Chile, and east into present day central Brazil.
It was established by King Charles I of Spain in 1528. Diego de Almagro was the appointed Spanish colonial governor.
It was replaced by the Spanish Viceroyalty of Peru in 1542.
