The hot tempered Charles, Duke of Burgundy was on the rampage. He had joined forces with other disaffected French noblemen and they were fighting their feudal overlord, King Louis XI. Charles had taken his army into France and was besieging towns and accepting their surrender. He had taken Nesle, Montdidier and Roye, harshly punishing them. His army then headed towards Beauvais on the Thérain River. He thought the people of Beauvais had heard of his wrath and treatment of the other towns and hoped they would surrender out of sheer terror. But he underestimated them to his detriment.
