Lima : The city of the Kings

Lima, a beautiful city with a population of 10 million habitants was called the city of the Kings. Some people believe, the city was named due to its foundation, which coincided with the biblical date of the Three Kings searching for Bethlehem when Jesus was born. At that time, instead of kings, there were authorities who searched for the ground to settle down between Pachacamac en Lima. However, some other people, mostly historians assure that the name was due in honor to the emperor Charles V from Austria & Charles I from Spain. Regardless of the historical origin of its name, the city was officially founded by the Spaniards on the 18th of January 1535 as the city of the Kings.
