Calais was captured in 1347 by Edward III during the Hundred Years War, and it remained in English hands until 1558, when it was liberated by François, 2nd duc de Guise. Its surrender to the English was the occasion of the well-known incident of the 'Six Burghers of Calais'. The city had been reduced to starvation by the siege. The Mayor and five other leading citizens came out of the city and offered Edward III the keys to the city and their lives, if he would only spare the city itself. Edward accepted these terms and the lives of the Burghers themselves were eventually spared due to the intercession of Queen Philippa (herself from Hainault).
