Explanation:
However, the Spanish isn't quite accurate, because the "demand" in question was the one Pizarro made: The Inca king Atahualpa, in exchange for his life, would be required to fill a certain room in his palace with gold, as a "gift" to the Spanish conqueror. (The Incas provided the gold, largely in the form of jewelry, plates, and religious and cultural artifacts, which the Spaniards melted down and shipped back to Spain. They also murdered Atahualpa...)

You might translate it as "...scene during which Pizarro made his demand of Atahualpa..." add an explanatory translator's note.
