WHILST thefe preparations were going for-ward, and during the refidence of the king of France at Arras, great bodies of men at arms were aifembling in the Tournefis, Artois, and caftlewick of Iille and its neighbourhood. Some knights and fquires, who refided at Lille and thereabout, refolved to perform feats of arms that fliould gain them renown, chiefly-through the exhortations of the Hafe de Flan-dres.
