An old Middle Age tale is of a murder of a French gentlemen named Sir Aubry de Montdidier. His dog, a dog of which the description is very similar to that of a Briard took it upon himself to relentlessly pursue the assassin, with such intense focus, howling and barking all the while that observers couldn’t help but notice. Once word of Aubry’s death spread, suspicions fell on a man named Macaire. With the dog being the only witness to the crime, The King ordained that a judiciary duel (trial by combat) should take place between man and dog. Macaire, armed with a cudgel (short thick stick) lost to the dog and confessed to the murder and was duly hanged. This strange conflict was fought out in 1371 on the Isle de Notre Dame.

A vivid sculpture of the event, “Chien d’Montargis”, sculpted by Gustave Debrie in 1870 now stands in the garden of l’Hotel Durzy in Montargis
