Today in Medieval History

On this day, September 29th, in medieval history:

  • 1227 – Pope Gregory IX excommunicates the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II
  • 1364- The Battle of Auray: English forces, under the command of John Chandos, defeat the French for control of Brittany, ending the Breton War of Succession

  1. What a good day this was – both items appear in writing projects of mine! The Battle of Auray is referenced in my short story Bisclavert, and Frederick II is the subject of a novel that I was working on a couple of years ago!
