In 1808, Spain found itself engrossed in a fight for independence that was to last almost six years. A weak monarchy, an ambitious prince and a real lack of scruples facilitated Emperor Napoleon's daring plan to invade the Iberian Peninsular thereby initiating a war that as its close contributed in no small way to his abdication in 1814. A Spanish Army that never seemed to diminish, the appearance of Anglo-Portuguese allies on the battlefield and the popular uprising of a plethora of guerilla groups transformed the Spanish conflict into a continuing nightmare for Napoleon, which he called 'the Spanish Ulcer'.
