The Capture of Bacharach took place on October 1, 1620 at Bacharach, Electorate of the Palatinate. The conflict was between the Spanish forces commanded by Don Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba and the Protestant forces of Frederick V, Elector Palatine, during the Palatinate campaign in the context of the Thirty Years' War. After a quick start of the invasion of states of Frederick V, proclaimed King of Bohemia, the operations slowed in mid-September, after the Capture of Oppenheim. Don Ambrosio Spinola, the Spanish general in command, assessed at a council of war the choice between undertaking the siege of Heidelberg or, secondarily, the town of Bacharach. The Spanish officers decided to take Bacharach due to the small number of Frederick's scattered forces. On October 1, Córdoba captured Bach

dbo:abstract
  • La toma de Bacharach por el ejército español de Flandes tuvo lugar el 1 de octubre de 1620 durante la fase palatina de la Guerra de los Treinta Años. Tras un rápido comienzo de la invasión de los estados del elector palatino y proclamado rey de Bohemia Federico V del Palatinado, las operaciones se ralentizaron a mediados de septiembre, tras la toma de Oppenheim. Ambrosio Spínola, general español al mando valoró en consejo de guerra con sus oficiales emprender el asedio a la plaza principal de Heidelberg o el de la de Bacharach, más secundaria. El reducido número de su ejército, mermado al estar parte de sus tropas repartidas en las distintas ciudades que se habían ocupado, determinó a Spínola a decidirse por Bacharach. (es)
