The crowd was now fo great, and fo dange-rous for thofe inclofed in it, that the men at arms, if not inftantly afiifted, could not raife themfelves when once down. By this were fe-veral of the French killed and fmothered ; but they were not many, for when in danger they helped each other. There was a large and high mount of the Flemings who were flain ; and never was there feen fo little blood fpilt at fo great a battle, where fuch numbers were killed. When thofe in the rear faw the front fail, and that they were defeated, they were greatly afto-nifhed, and began to throw away their staves ' and armour, to difband and fly towards Cour-tray and other places, not having any care but to fave themfelves if poffible. The Bretons and French purfued them into ditches, alder groves and heaths, where they fought with and flew them. Numbers were killed in the purfuit, be-tween the field of battle and Courtray, whither they were flying in their way to Ghent. This battle on Mont d'Or took place the 27th day of November, on the Thurfday before Advent, intime year of grace 1382; and at that time the king of France was fourteen years of age. CHAR
