In Spain, a woefully abortive Carlist attempt is made to overthrow the Spanish throne

The Count de Montemolin, a Carlist claimant to the Spanish throne of Isabella II, landed with 3,600 soldiers on the Spanish coast and began a march on Valencia. No-one had told the soldiers of their mission and when the rank-and-file discovered its purpose they immediately declared themselves loyal subjects of the Queen and arrested their leaders. Isabella showed mercy and merely deported her cousin. (By John Osborne)
