A little history....Saluart or Salvaert, Lyderic de Buc's father tried to travel to England with his wife and son and unfortunately he was murdered by Phinart le Tiran and his wife Eringarde de Roussillon had time to hide his son Lyderic in a hedge before being herself captured and imprisoned by Phinart.
Lyderic was discovered by a hermit who adopted him and raised him.
Arriving at the age of 18 and after learning what happened to his father, Lyderic provoked Phinart into a duel and Phinart was killed by Lyderic.
Lyderic then built a fortress on an island located in the arms of the Deule and gradually this island turned into a village and then a city to become LILLE.
