Catalan term or phrase: Armanyagueses
This noble lord I am writing about...

"... fought in the war against the Armanyagueses in 1389"

I presume these were some kind of Heretical sect.. or another noble family.

Anyone got any ideas, please?

Explanation:
"Hundred Years' War, an intermittent struggle between England and France in the 14th-15th century over a series of disputes, including the question of the legitimate succession to the French crown. The struggle involved several generations of English and French claimants to the crown and actually occupied a period of more than 100 years. By convention it is said to have started in 1337 and ended in 1453, but there had been periodic fighting over the question of English fiefs in France going back to the 12th century.
.
.
.
After 1380 both countries were preoccupied with internal power struggles, and the war lapsed into uncertain peace. Possession of Flanders remained the outstanding issue. Edward III's grandson Richard II was eventually deposed (1399) by another grandson, who became Henry IV. In France, Charles V's brothers fought over who should administer affairs of state in the name of Charles VI, who suffered from bouts of insanity that rendered him incapable of ruling.

One of Charles VI's uncles, Philip the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, died in 1404. His son and heir, John the Fearless, had a rival cousin, Louis, Duke d'Orléans, assassinated in 1407. Civil war broke out in France between the Armagnacs (supporters of Orléans and, later, adherents of the dauphin Charles) and the Burgundians."

Possible Clue / Pista


Explanation:
Little context you give us, could help to know the name of that noble. for the time being I have not yet found \"Armanyagueses\" as such anywhere, nor many possible Catalan versions I made up. What I did find was...where a town called Armanyà is, check this bus schedule from link below:
HORARI DISSABTES..
Direcció Vilanova - Vilafranca
Pl. Catalunya - Armanyà - Ribes
so it\'s somewhere between Barcelona and Ribes de Fresser. I\'ll keep searching. This data is for you in case it helps to do your own searches. Fins aviat :)
