The siege of Hennebont of 1342 was an episode of the War of the Breton Succession. The forces of Charles of Blois kept Jeanne of Flandre in the city, while they waited for English reinforcements. The arrival of these reinforcements in June 1342 provoked the lifting of the siege.

Jeanne of Flandre took refuge in Hennebont and waited for reinforcements promised by her liege, Amaury of Clisson and the English troops. The city was besieged by the supporters of the opposing Ducal claimant, Charles of Blois. Following a trick, she succeeded in getting out of the besieged city, and travelling to Auray to find the reinforcements. They returned to Hennebont five days later, still thanks to a trick.
