After a thorough investigation, which included three national historians, it was determined that Pedro Di Valdivia has never written the word to the Spanish king in one of his 11 letters and thanks to this winner.
Mario is known as Orella, National History Award and character letter one of the nation's greatest experts, it confirms that "Pedro di Valdivia does not appear anywhere in the letter (…)" There is no similar word, no one. "
