For the commune in France, see Sains, Ille-et-Vilaine.

Sains is a locality in Brittany in northern France.


Treaties between France and England placed Brittany under English rule. In 1402 the French and English were getting along a little better, after many decades of disputes in 1518 a treaty was signed giving England ownership of Brittany, hostages were handed over by the French as a guarantee that the treaty would be honoured.

The Lords of Sains in Brittany were party to many of the meetings and discussions, and involved in agreeing terms. Whilst the agreements were made Brittany was still disputed for many years later and eventually fell back into French hands.
