The Siege of La Charité was incited by the order of Charles VII to Joan of Arc after the warlord Perrinet Gressard seized the town in 1423.

La Charité was not only strongly fortified, but fully victualled for a prolonged siege. Joan's forces were known to be poorly equipped with artillery. On November 7, 1429 the people of Clermont were addressed with a letter asking the town to send supplies to Joan's army for the siege. On November 9 Joan made another request for supplies in preparation. Charles d'Albret, of Joan's army, sent a letter to Riommarker on the same day. The assistance came from Bourgesmarker and Orleansmarker, which sent soldiers and artillerymen. However after a month-long struggle in bad weather, the siege was abandoned.
