The Battle of Alcolea occurred on 27 September 1868.
The badly wounded and permanently disfigured Novaliches retreated and Francisco Serrano y Domínguez marched on Madrid. The revolutionaries' success at this battle forced Queen Isabella II into exile in France and allowed Serrano to enter the capital, form a Provisional Government, convoke the Cortes Constituyentes in February 1869, and be appointed successively president of the executive and regent.
