Caupolican the younger according to Juan Ignacio Molina was the son of the toqui Caupolican. He was made toqui following the capture and execution of his father in 1558. He continued the first Mapuche rising against the Spanish conquistadors in 1558 and commaned the Mapuche army in constructing a pucara at Quiapo to block Garcia Hurtado de Mendoza from rebuilding a fort in Arauco completing the chain of forts for suppression of their rebellion. In the Battle of Quiapo the Mapuche suffered a terrible defeat and there Caupolican the younger died. His successor as toqui was Illangulien.

The earlier historian Diego de Rosales says the toqui that led at Quiapo was LemucaguinDiego de Rosales, Historia General del Reino de Chile, Flandes Indiano, 3 tomos. Valparaiso 1877 - 1878.
