The Siege of La Charité was incited by the order of Charles VII to Joan of Arc after the warlord Perrinet Gressard seized the town in 1423.[1]

La Charité was not only strongly fortified, but fully victualled for a prolonged siege.[2] Joan's forces were known to be poorly equipped with artillery.[3] On November 7, 1429 the people of Clermont were addressed with a letter asking the town to send supplies to Joan's army for the siege.[4] On November 9 Joan made another request for supplies in preparation. Charles II d'Albret, of Joan's army, sent a letter to Riom on the same day. The assistance came from Bourges and Orléans, which sent soldiers and artillerymen.[2] However, after a month-long struggle in bad weather, the siege was abandoned.
