Thursday, December 4, 1259

On the 4th of December 1259 Louis IX of France and Henry III of England came to a settlement over the lands lost by John of England in the war of 1204. In return for keeping parts of Aquitaine and Gascony as a vassal of Louis, along with the cities of Limoges, Cahors and Périgueux, Henry agreed to renounced his claims on Normandy, Maine, Anjou and Poitou. The treaty was meant to settle the dispute between the French and English kings but the terms of the agreement were never completely met, and the resentments led to the 100 years war. 1
