Battle of Damme

Description


The Battle of Damme was fought on 30 May and 31 May 1213. The success of the English raids ended a threat of French invasion of England. Damme is located on the estuary of the Zwyn (now largely silted up), at that time in the county of Flanders (now in Belgium). It was then the port of the city of Bruges. The English knew King Philip II of France was planning to invade England, at the very least as a way of preventing an English attack on Poitou. Go to the map ⬆⬆
