160 EMILIO DE DIEGO GARCÍA ABSTRACT O’Donnell was the promoter of the most outstanding Spanish performances on the international stage, during the reign of Isabel II. The Far East, Africa and especially America were the scenes of several military missions, albeit with unequal results. Success in North Africa, failure in Santo Domingo. However, the intervention with the greatest international impact was the one carried out in Mexico in 1862, in alliance with France and the United Kingdom. Prim participated both in the so-called “War of Africa” (1859) as well as in the expedition to Mexico, playing a prominent role, to the extreme of appearing as protagonist in both of them. These pages try to provide some elements to improve the knowledge about the relationships between the Duke of Tetuan and the Marquis of los Castillejos, concerning the Spanish performance in the territory of the former New Spain.
