and Richard laid siege to the castle of Chalus-Chabrol to suppress it
although is just a castle siege -- his troops won

Richard The Lionheart

To everyone's surprise it was a boy. This boy claimed that Richard had killed the boy's father and two brothers, and that he had killed Richard in revenge
According to one chronicler, Richard's last act of chivalry proved fruitless; in an orgy of medieval brutality, the infamous mercenary captain Mercadier had the crossbowman flayed alive and hanged as soon as Richard died.

The French army won at Ravenna(1511) against the Holy League (Spain and the Papal States), unfortunately the French commander, the Duke of Nemours died in a rather stupid way with the clash already deciced in his favor.

The battle of Khotyn or Chocim 1621. Ottomans backed by Crimean Khanate, Wallahia and Moldavia with the army about 150.000 soldiers (including war elephants) invaded Polish - Lithuanian Commonwealth in the attempt to conquer it or at least to take over the whole Ukraine. The Ottoman army was stopped by Polish - Lithuanian Commonwealth army aided by Cossacks, under command of Jan Karol Chodkiewicz, Grand Hetman of Lithuania. During the siege several battles were fought and Ottoman armies were being defeated in the field and their attacks were repulsed as well. Old Chodkiewicz died few days before the end of exhaustion and illness in the camp.
