Background: Ancient Peru was the seat of several prominent Andean civilizations , most notably that of the Incas whose empire was captured by the Spanish conquistadors in 1533. Peruvian independence was declared in 1821 , and remaining Spanish forces defeated in 1824. After a dozen years of military rule , Peru returned to democratic leadership in 1980 , but experienced economic problems and the growth of a violent insurgency. President Alberto FUJIMORI's election in 1990 ushered in a decade that saw a dramatic turnaround in the economy and significant progress in curtailing guerrilla activity. Nevertheless , the president's increasing reliance on authoritarian measures and an economic slump in the late 1990s generated mounting dissatisfaction with his regime , which led to his ouster in 2000. A caretaker government oversaw new elections in the spring of 2001 , which ushered in Alejandro TOLEDO as the new head of government - Peru's first democratically elected president of Native American ethnicity. The presidential election of 2006 saw the return of Alan GARCIA who , after a disappointing presidential term from 1985 to 1990 , returned to the presidency with promises to improve social conditions and maintain fiscal responsibility.
