Penne and the Hundred Years War

During the Hundred Years War (1337-1453), Penne is one of the issues of regional struggles.

From 1334, the place is under attack of English troops ...

In 1365, the Seneschal of Quercy defeats the Anglo-Gascon who came to lay siege to Penne ; but the same year, a Gascon captain named Mongat, acting for the English, took Penne.

In 1374 (August or September), Du Guesclin takes the place to the English.

In 1384, the castle, detained again by the English, was besieged by the French led Gaucher Passac, captain general of Languedoc. The castle was then evacuated by the English, following payment of a ransom by the Duke of Berry. The same year the English took the village again and kept it until 1451.

Penne has been under English rule for many years.

The castle was dismantled in 1586.
