Battle of Neville's Cross, 17 October 1346
The Battle of Neville's Cross was one of the low points of the Franco-Scottish alliance. A Scottish army led by David II crossed into Northern England under pressure from their French allies. Only two months after the French had been defeated at Crecy, the Scots were similarly crushed at Neville's Cross in Durham. David II of Scotland was captured after the battle and spend the next eleven years in captivity in England.
