Siege of Limoges in 1370 was laid by the English troops after the
town had opened its gates to the Duke of Berry. According to Jean
Froissart, the Bishop of Limoges played a large role in assisting
the surrender. Sir John Villemur, Hugh de la Roche and Roger
Beaufont are described in terms of putting up a last stand against
the English.The town of Limoges had been under English control but
in 1370 it surrendered to the French. Froissart alleges that Edward
was put into a 'violent passion' in which he declares that
regaining Limoges and punishment vague] will be his singular goal.
When the city wall fell, Froissart mentions the massacre of three
thousand inhabitants, men, women and children, breaching the rules
of chivalry and Edward still, 'inflamed with passion and revenge'.
Three captured French knights appealed to John of Gaunt and the
Earl of Cambridge for being treated 'according to the law of arms'
and turned prisoners.
