Raymond VI of Toulouse, a French noble accused of supporting Catharism, meets with papal representative Pierre de Castelnau at Saint-Gilles, in Provence. The two exchange threats and de Castelnau will be assassinated when leaving the city the next day.

Both Raymond specifically and Cathars generally will be blamed for the killing, leading to calls for the Crusade against the Cathars.
