Siege of León (1368)

The Siege of León of 1368 was a successful Spanish siege of the town by the pretender Henry of Trastámara, in the course of the Castilian Civil War. == History == In 1367, Henry of Castile, resoundingly defeated in the Battle of Nájera, went back to the Peninsula leading an army and taking Burgos. After seizing the town of Dueñas and its castle in mid-January 1368, Henry headed for the city of León, one of the capitals of the kingdom. León had remained loyal to King Pedro of Castile, and received his favors. Therefore, the city presented a strong resistance for several months, until the besiegers succeeded in seizing the convent of Santo Domingo, near the walls, and placed there a siege tower.
