From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The first Battle of Olmedo between Castilian forces and those of Navarre and Aragon, took place on May 19, 1445 outside of the village of that name.

The war was in part prompted by the decrees of Juan II of Castilla and his aide Álvaro de Luna that rents, that is taxes, from the town of Medina del Campo would be paid to his administration, rather than that of Juan II of Aragón, also of Navarre. The latter king invaded Castile, aided by his brother Alfonso V of Aragón. The Castilian king departed from Medina del Campo, and met the invasion at Olmedo, where the he was successful. A few days later, in Calatayud, the prince, infante don Henry of Aragón died of his wounds.
