The Third Carlist War (Spanish: Tercera Guerra Carlista) (1872-1876) was the last Carlist War in Spain. It is very often referred to as the Second Carlist War.

During this conflict, Carlist forces managed to occupy several cities in the interior of Spain, the most important ones being La Seu d'Urgell and Estella in Navarre. Isabel II was in exile, and King Amadeo I of Spain, crowned in 1871, was not very popular. The Carlist pretender, "Carlos VII", grandson of Carlos V, proclaimed the restoration of Catalonian, Valencian, and Aragonese fueros (charters) which Philip V had previously abolished.

The Carlist forces did not succeed, and the promises were never fulfilled. After four years of war, on 27 February 1876, the Carlist pretender went into exile in France. On the same day, King Alfonso XII of Spain landed at Pamplona.

The war caused between 7,000 and 50,000 casualties.[1]

Popular culture

Paz en la guerra (Peace in War) (1895), a novel by Miguel de Unamuno, explores the relationship of self and world through the familiarity with death. It is based on his experiences as a child during the Carlist siege of Bilbao in the Third Carlist War.

Part of the film Vacas (1992) is set during the Third Carlist War.
