Aiguillon (French pronunciation: [ɛɡɥijɔ̃] (About this soundlisten); Occitan: Gulhon) is a commune of the Lot-et-Garonne department in southwestern France.[2]

It lies near the two rivers junction that gives name to the department.[3][4]

The organist and composer Marc de Ranse (1881–1951) was born in Aiguillon.[5]

History

Attached to the English crown in 1318, it was conquered by Du Guesclin in 1370.[6] The future Jean II conducted a large-scale but unsuccessful siege of the place in 1346. In 1599 it was converted into a duchy of its own.
