Cagot is the name given to a minority group historically located in France.

History

The origins of the Cagot are largely unknown as very little written history of them exists asides from their persecutions. The Cagots have largely gone into hiding after the French Revolution due to the persecutions they had faced.

In 2008, a French woman by the name of Marie-Pierre Manet-Beauzac revealed she is a Cagot.[1]
