In January 1892, four years before the Philippine-Spanish war erupted Eulalio went to Hong Kong and delivered P18,000.00 of the family's personal funds to Dr. Jose Rizal to finance his subversive propaganda movement against Spain. Eulalio brought back propaganda pamphlets and an ivory dagger given by Jose Rizal as a memento to Dona Gliceria. The Spaniards accused Eulalio of being a filibusterer and imprisoned him in the Old Bilibid Prison in Manila when his connections with the revolutionary movement had been confirmed. The Spaniards bargained with Gliceria to reveal the secrets of the Katipunan in exchange for the release of her husband. She turned them down and replied "I love my husband as few wives can, but I would consider myself un-worthy of carrying his name if I will procure his liberty at the expense of his country's blood." Eulalio was eventually released after a year in prison but died of illness 3 months later due to his incarceration.
Dona Gliceria, also called "Aling Eriang" donated the family ship, the "SS Bulusan" which was purchased in 1893. It was the first warship of the Revolutionary Government. She was a founder of the Batallon Maluya, gave financial and moral support to the revolutionaries and continually provided food, clothing and ammunition to the soldiers. Her house became the secret meeting place of revolutionary leaders including Andres Bonifacio, General Miguel Malvar and General Marasigan.
General Emilio Aguinaldo named Gliceria Marella de Villavicencio "Madrina-General de las Fuerzas Revolucionarios" on June 12, 1898 for her patriotism and contributions to the Philippine Revolution. A book entitled "Marella y la Inquietud Romantica de la Revolution" was written about her by Francisco Zaragoza in 1954 and includes a collection of statements by notable Filipinos namely: General Aguinaldo, Senator Claro M. Recto, Dra. Encarnacion Alzona, Dr. Ireneo Encarnacion (Aide de Camp of General Ananias Diokno) and others.
