Comment[edit]

Details. There are none, save what may be recalled from a picture book or the History Channel. Wetman 00:51, 30 Aug 2004 (UTC)

See french version of article[edit]

It is alot different to the english one. The french call all revolts by peasants a Jacquerie. It comes from "Bonhomme Jacques" or Goodman Jack, the appelation for a typical french farmer

Note that this comment -- which I believe is accurate -- shows the unreliability of Tuchman as a source on many details in her book. Her conflation of "jacquerie" and a kind of jacket is a characteristic error. Pechmerle (talk) 06:14, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Assessment[edit]

A fine start, covering all the basic information. But I think that Wetman's comment from two years ago still largely holds true. Needs further expansion from sources other than the one public-domain element listed. LordAmeth 09:24, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

A little bit of an update[edit]

I tried to use a combination of primary and secondary sources from Samuel Cohn's chapter on the Jacquerie from his book entitled Popular Protest in Late Medieval Europe. What I have come to notice during research for this topic is that this peasant revolt is, overall, under researched. There are very few sources on the matter. I also think that this article and the article on Guillaume Cale could probably be merged. Mikegio 23:12, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

A term in its own right[edit]

Jacquerie seems to have become a term meaning peasant uprising. For example the 19th century Galician slaughter was called by one author "the last jacquerie or peasant uprising in European history." (see ref in that article). This may merit a note. Perhaps a disambig at the top of the article? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 14:11, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
