In sixteenth-century Spain, this time period was once used to explain epic poems of compliment, occasionally set tomusic. Chroniclers additionally use the phrases canto, loa, historia, and romance. The cantar incorporated compliment for the protagonist, andfor Inca males, that meanttelling the tale of his victories in battles.
