A Carlist uprising in Spain began with the landing of rebel General Ortega and the Carlist pretender, Carlos, Count Montemolin on the northern coast of Catalonia.  But Ortega's troops proclaimed themselves loyal to sitting Queen Isabella and arrested their general and, later, the two royal claimants.  Carlos, to save his life, abdicated his rights to the throne and was released.  He later rescinded this declaration when safe in Germany.
