Buckingham, a leading English noble, was uncle to the young King Richard II. This campaign was in support of John V, Duke of Brittany, then independent of the French crown. The French refused battle on 25 August. Buckingham then laid siege to Nantes, but by January 1381 was forced to retreat. Artwork from the 15th-century French work 'Chronique d'Angleterre' by Jean of Wavrin, a history of England covering the period from 1377 to 1387.
