White Company (The)

.

Le Blanche Compagnie.” A band of French cut-throats organised by Bertrand du Guesclin and led against Pedro the Cruel.

“Se faisoient appeller ‘La Blanche Compagnie,ʹ parce quʹils portoient tous une croix blanche sur lʹepaule, comme voulant témoigner quʹils nʹavoient pris les armes que pour abolir le Judaïsme en Espagne, et combattre le Prince qui le protégesit.”—Memoires Historiques.
