Pedro's troops landed in modern day Puerto Pedro in 1505, and started a war with the locals living there. After a three day siege, Pedro's troops captured the Incan stronghold of Techtatitlan, establishing the Governorate of Neuva Catalonia. He later returned back to Spain to be crowned the Governor of New Catalonia by Charles V.
The Spanish conquistadors mercilessly began to slaughter the natives, by inhumane killing and spreading of diseases, and his troops estabished the city of Gvonn in 1509, after razing down two native sacred places. He constructed his private residence on top of a native burial ground.
He annexed Inochtitlan in 1510, and began to forcibly steal the Incan gold. He also started a slaving company, transporting Incan slaves back to Spain.
The Alconbrian warship, the Ojeda is named after Pedro de Ojeda.
