SUMMARY

Between 1311 and 1379 a well-organized army of approximately 6.5 thousand Catalans and Aragonians mercenaries, known in the bibliography as the Catalan Company, conquered and ruled Eastern Mainland Greece, including Boeotia. This region was wrested from the la Roche, the Frankish rulers of the Duchy of Athens and Thebes, following the Catalans' glorious and unexpected victory in the Battle of Halmyros at Magnesia in March 1311.
