Presentation of Sacquenville

The municipality of Sacquenville (1,195 inhabitants in 2015, 997 ha) is located 10 km north-west of Évreux.
Sacquenville was the cradle of a powerful feudal lineage, known since Robert de Sacquenville, who died at the end of the 12th century. Six generations later, his direct descendant was Pierre II de Sacquenville (1305-1364), Field Marshal of the King of Navarre Charles II the Bad (1349-1387). Captured at the battle of Cocherel on 13 May 1364, he was accused by King of France Charles V the Wise (1354-1380) of betrayal and lese majesty and sentenced to death. Beheaded and then quartered, he had his head exposed on a pole in the "common theater" of Rouen. The king clearly showed the nobility than those taking the Navarre party would be considered as betrayers and could not expect to save their life by paying a ransom.
