The Battle of Montiel was fought in 1369 between Franco-Castilian forces, and an alliance of pro-English forces. After the battle, Peter fled to the castle of Montiel, where he became trapped. In a confrontation with his stepbrother Henry, Peter was killed. His death on 23 March 1369 marked the end of the Castilian Civil War. His victorious half-brother was crowned Henry II of Castille. ~ Art by Jose Daniel Cabrera Peña.
