  Combat of the Thirty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Combat of the Thirty (March 27, 1351), was an episode in the struggle for the succession to the duchy of Brittany.
It was fought between thirty champions, knights and squires on either side, in a challenge issued by Jean de Beaumanoir, a captain of Charles of Blois supported by the king of France, to Robert Bramborough, a captain of Jean de Montfort supported by the king of England.
While the combat did not have any real effect on the war, neither did it settle political issues surrounding it, it was considered the finest expression of chivalry by contemporaries.
