What were the circumstances of his death?

In Lima, on 26 June 1541 "a group of 20 heavily armed supporters stormed Pizarro's palace, assassinating him, and then forced the terrified city council to appoint young Almagro as the new governor of Peru". "Most of Pizarro's guests fled, but a few fought the intruders, numbered variously between seven and 25. While Pizarro struggled to buckle on his breastplate, his defenders, including his half-brother were killed. For his part, Pizarro killed two attackers and ran through a third. While trying to pull out his sword, he was stabbed in the throat, then fell to the floor where he was stabbed many times.Pizarro collapsed on the floor, alone, painted a cross in his own blood.

why was Francisco Pizarro so important?

Pizarro was so important because he traveled/ explored Peru.He had passed through war,pretty much was stabbed to death.He was able to capture the Inca leader and gained control over the Inca Empire.Pretty much without him we wouldn't know so much about Peru and South America.Even though he did take over Inca Empire still good.

First, I would explore with Pizarro I mean who wouldn't want to explore with a famous explorer being able to go on a boat.Pizarro had discovered the Pacific Ocean I would have wanted to do that .Even though this isn't a good thing he had conquered Peru.I would have wanted to go along and explore with Pizarro.
