Napoleón en Chamartín is the fifth novel in the first series of the National Episodes by Benito Pérez Galdós.
Narrated by the chronicler and main character of these National Episodes, Gabriel de Araceli, this novel describes the entry of Napoleon Bonaparte into Madrid accompanied by his army. Once the battle of Bailén was won on July 19, 1808, both the citizens and the generals of the Spanish army entered a kind of lethargy that lasted four months, and the proximity of the French to the gates of Madrid forced them to take up arms and defend the homeland again. Benito Pérez Galdós describes the events that occurred during the four months following the success of Bailén, highlighting the disagreement that reigns among the most prominent generals of Spain, including Castaños, Palafox, Cuesta, Blake and Álava. The city prepares to resist but, as Gabriel says, on December 4, 1808 it will have to surrender. Joseph I Bonaparte returns to the throne.
After the capitulation, Santorcaz is appointed chief of bailiffs. Gabriel learns that he wants to catch him, and asks Countess Amaranta for help to flee Madrid. But in the end he remains in the capital to avoid the abduction of his beloved Agnes, ignoring the advice of the countess.
Reference edition: Madrid, Imprenta de José María Pérez, 1876.
