During the 100 years war In about 1358, the defense of the city of Loches was in the hands of one Enguerrand d'Eudin. As a minor Captain supporting the Crown he surrounded himself with friends and acquaintances from the Picardy Region and they formed the local garrison which was under his command. This garrison was supplied and financed by fleecing the surrounding population of Loches. He was later accused of ransoming local villages; indulging in large-scale theft including the rounding up farm animals and selling them off to the highest bidder; collecting local taxes including those that had been abolished by the King. While doing all of this he failed to prevent the advance of the Gascon army and only made minor improvements to the town's fortifications. Fortunately for him and his friends Loches did not come under attack during this campaign so its defences and garrison were never tested.
