Picquigny is a commune in the Somme department in Hauts-de-France in northern France.GeographyPicquigny is situated at the junction of the N235, the D141 and D3 roads, on the banks of the Somme River, some 8mi northwest (and downstream) of Amiens. A railway station also serves the town.HistoryAlready established as a Gallic settlement before the Romans arrived, a Gallo-Roman cemetery gallo-romain was discovered in 1895 in the area known as Les Vignes.Known through the ages by various names, in 942 as Pinquigniacum, Pinconii castrum in 1066 and Pinchiniacum in 1110, then as Pinkeni, Pinkinei and Pecquigny.After the defeat of the Huns at Lihons-en-Santerre, the inhabitants of Amiens, who had helped the barbarians, took refuge in the castle of Picquigny, to hide from the vengeance of Dagobert, where they were then besieged by him.On 17 December 942, Arnulf I, Count of Flanders and William I, Duke of Normandy came to Picquigny to sign a peace treaty. They met on a small island in the Somme, having both left their armies behind. After the meeting, William left but was then assassinated by Arnulf’s supporters.
