Crusaders attack the castle of Cabaret, near the French town of Lastours. Pierre-Roger de Cabarat manages to hold out, however. He controls three castles in the region: Querinheux, Surdespine, and Cabaret. All three are located high in the mountains and are difficult to reach.

Pierre-Roger de Cabarat is sympathetic to the Cathars and their cause, but he is not a Cathar himself and is not eager to defend them. What he does care about is remaining independent of higher authorities, whoever they may be, and he isn't pleased to see the Crusade moving through southern France, imposing the will of the pope and the king in Paris on everyone.
