    The Jacquerie at Meaux (1358). From Jean Froissart's Chroniques; Bruges, Belgium; third half of the 14th century. The Jacquerie was a popular revolt in late medieval Europe that took place in northern France in 1358, during the Hundred Years' War. The revolt centered in the Oise Valley north of Paris. These rebellions were known as the Jacquerie after the peasant revolutionary Guillaume Caillet, popularly known as Jacques Bonhomme ("Simple Jack") or Callet. The revolt was suppressed by French nobles led by Charles the Bad of Navarre. Caillet, who was the leader of the rebellion, was captured by the French nobles and tortured to death by use of red-hot irons. The word "Jacquerie" became a synonym for peasant uprisings, and for centuries the nobility lived in fear of a repeat performance.
