Agnès Sorel, the mistress of King Charles, died in this village. She was probably murdered here. While pregnant with their fourth child, she joined Charles on the campaign of 1450 in Jumièges, wanting to be with him as moral support. There, she suddenly became ill and died on February 9 at the age of 28. While the cause of death was originally thought to be dysentery, scientists have now concluded that Agnès died from being poisoned by mercury, making it likely that she was a victim of murder, with suspects being unknown.

You can still visit the Manoir de la Vigne ou “manoir d’‘Agnès Sorel” in the village.
