râè CHAP. XI1L AYMERIGOT MARCEL, CAPTAIN OF THE PIL-LAG1N6 COMPANIES, HAVING FORTIFIED LA ROCHE PE VANDAIS, ON THE BORDERS OF LIMOUSIN AND AUVERGNE, IS BESIEGED BY THE VISCOUNT DE MAUX, BY COMMAND OF THE KING OF FRANCE* TOURING the time of the aflembly of this body of men at arms in France, for the expedi-tion to extend the Chriftian faith, and gain renown, there were another fort of men at arms wholly given up to plunder in Limoufin, Auvergne and Rouergue, who, in fpite of the truce, were con-tinually doing mifchief to thefe countries, which thought themfelves in fecurity. The king of France had caufed the truce to be publicly noufied to the captains of the freebooters, particularly to Perrot le Béarnois, governor of Chaluçet, Aynje-rigot Marcel, Olim Barbe, captain of Donzac in Auvergne, who were perfonally named in the a£t, and were affured, that if the truce were in the fmalleft degree infringed, thefe guilty of it fhould be corporally punifhed, without hope of mercy. This was done, that there might not be any excufes made from ignorance of the treaty. Some of the captains, fearful of a difgraceful death, or of incurring the king's indignation, kept the peace very well. Others did not, for which, they paid feverely, as you will hear in the conti* Buation of this hiftory. " •
