Title: 
Order, 1323 February 25, from Aimerie Du Cros
Incipit: 
Aymericus de Croso, miles domini nostri Francorum
Origin Date: 
1324
Origin Location: 
France
Description: 
Order from Aimeri du Cros (Aymericus de Croso), knight, seneschal of the King of France, Charles IV (the Fair), for Périgord and Quercy, to the king’s bailiff of Maurencx (Maurens, canton Villamblard, Dordogne) to come with armed men and horses to Lausertam (Lauzerte, Tarn et Garonne, SW of Cahors) on Thursday, March 15th, next to “Montedome” (Mont de Domme, canton Domme, Dordogne). Dated 25 February 1324.
Provenance: 
France, 1323-1324. Guyenne and Gascony were held by the English on terms of homage to the French kings, but were confiscated by the kings of France in 1296 and 1324 on the ground of failure of feudal duties. Thus 1324-5 have been described as those “two years of war” (Chaplais, 80). Edward III acquired full sovereignty of Guyenne in 1360; France regained it in 1451. The territory of Guyenne, a Duchy stretching from the Charente to the Pyrenees, is now represented by the départment of Gironde, Lot et Garonne, most of Tarn et Garonne, etc. Note that the pencil note at bottom right is characteristic of documents once in the important but little known Fuller collection (Quaritch, preface to item 1; A Mace).
