The Battle of North Walsham was a mediaeval battle that occurred in Norfolk, England on June 25 or 26th 1381. It marked the beginning of the end of military resistance during the Peasants'' Revolt. The Norfolk rebels led by Geoffrey Litster, the so-called ''King of the Commons'', were defeated by a heavily armed force led by Henry le Despenser, Bishop of Norwich. The battle took place south of the town of North Walsham: the site is one of only five known battlefields in Norfolk. Litster was publicly executed soon after the end of the battle, but the fate of the peasants who perished in the aftermath of the battle is less certain: the few historical records that exist fail to support the belief that the rebels were massacred by Despenser''s men in the church.
