We will now fpeak of fir Bertrand du Guefclin, who, on his departure from the duke of Anjou, marched with his men to the fiege of Limoges, where the duke of Berry, the duke of Bourboq and the great knights*of France were employed. The French were in high fpirits on the arrival of fir Bertrand, and it was a - grand piece of news both within as well « wifhotit the city. He imme-diately followed up fome treaties which had been before opened between the biflipp and citizens with the duke of Berry, and managed that they were concluded by the bifliép apd citizens turning to the French. The dukes of Berry and Bourbon, fir Guy de Blois and the lords of France entered the town with great ftate, when they received from the inhabitants their homage and fealty. After they had refted themfelves for three days, they followed the fame refolutkxts as had been deter-mined upon in the council held by the duke of Anjou, and each man retired to hts own country to guard his towns and caftles againft fir Robert Knolles* who ftill kept his ground in France, and alfo becaufe they had done enough by taking fuch a city as Limoges. The lords then feparated, but fir Bertrand remained in Limoufin with two hundred lances, which he pofted in the caftles of the lord de Maleval, who had turned to the French. When the duke of Berry left Limoges, he or-dered into the city, at the requeft of the bifhop, fir John de Villemur, fir Hugh de la Roche and Roger dc Beaufort, with oae hundred men at* arms. 98
