In the countryside, there were rumours that the landlords of the manor had hired criminals to destroy the ripe crops of the peasants. Being afraid of the situation, peasants in several districts seized hoes and pitchforks and attacked chateaux (castles belonging to the noblemen). They looted the hoarded grain. They also burnt down documents containing records of manorial dues. As a result, a larger number of nobles fled from their home towns and migrated to neighbouring countries.
