Royal Hunt for the Sun by Peter Shaffer

This is the story of the conquest of Peru – the defeat by 167 men of a highly organized empire of 10million people.  Francisco Pizarro is the embittered, defiant commander of the invading Spanish and Atahuallpa, is the Incan king, Sun god-upon-earth.  Between the two there grows a deep and understanding friendship.
