Notes

Additional to these troops were Colonel Luis Andriani's garrison of Saguntum, which comprised five battalions of foot (2 each from the Savoya & don Carlos regiments, 1 from the Cazadore de Orihuela). These battalions together with some 150 gunners and sappers made a total of around 2600 men.
