In the spring of 1430 the king ordered Joan to confront a Burgundian assault. In her effort to defend the town and It's inhabitants, she was thrown from her horse and was left outside the town's gates as they closed. The Burgundians took her captive and brought her to the castle of Bouvreuil occupied by the English.
