The king-, the father, after the death of the king, his son, every day made more violent assaults upon the castle of Limoges, to which he had laid siege, and at length both the castle and the city of Limoges were surrendered to him, besides all the castles of his enemies in that neighbourhood ; some of which he retained in his own hands, and some he levelled with the ground, not leaving one stone upon another.
