Battle of Montiel (1369)

After the Battle of Najera, Peter the Cruel refused to repay the cost of campaign to his English allies and for that reason Edward, the Black Prince left Spain. Henry of Trastamara and Bertrand du Guesclin who was ransomed by Charles V of France returned to Spain with more troops and decisively defeated the forces of Peter the Cruel in the Battle of Montiel on March 14, 1369. On March 23, 1369, Peter was assassinated by Henry of Trastamara who assumed the Castilian throne as Henry II and ended the Castilian Civil War (1366-1369).
