Combat of the Thirty, A Tale of Chivalry from 1351

In 1341, John III, the Duke of the sovereign Duchy of Brittany, died, leaving some mixed instructions as to who was supposed to take his place. The war that would come afterward was closely related to the early stages of the Hundred Years War, and would lead to one of the Middle Ages’ best displays of chivalry. The History Guy recalls the “Combat of the Thirty”. It is history that deserves to be remembered.
