The Jacobite Wars The Hundred Years' War (1337-1453) The Hundred Year War (which brought on the Renaissance) was a war fought entirely on French soil, it raged off and on for more than 100 years. English victories were followed by French victories, then a period of stalemate would ensue, until the conflicts again arose to the surface. During periods of truce, English and French soldiers (most of whom were mercenaries) would roam the French countryside killing and stealing. After the battle of Agincourt in 1415 Which was won by the English under the leadership of Henry V, the English controlled most of northern France. It appeared that England would shortly win over France and unite the two countries under one crown. At this extreme moment in French history, a young and illiterate peasant girl, Joan of Arc, helped to rescue France The Wars of the Roses (1455-1485) The rivalry between the house of York and the House of Lancaster started when, in 1399 King Richard II was overthrown by his own cousin, Henry Bolingbroke, Duke of Lancaster. But the Wars of the Roses actually began on May 22, 1455 with First Battle of St Albans when Richard, Duke of York and his ally, Richard, Earl of Warwick defeated the Lancastrians under leadership of Edmund Beaufort who was killed. York captured Henry VI.

Battles fought duringthe wars of Roses:

1455: The First Battle of St Albans
1460: Battle of Northampton
1460: The Battle of Wakefield
1471: Battle of Barnet
1471: Battle of Tewkesbury
1485: Battle of Bosworth Field The Eighty Years War The Eighty years war starts with the ransacking of churches and convents (Beeldenstorm) in 1566. The cause of this uprising can be found in the bad economic position of the common people and the oppression of the new calvinistic religion. This oppression was policy of King Philip II of Spain who also ruled the low countries. The result of this outburst of violence was that the breach between Catholics and King on one hand, and Calvinists together with unsatisfied noblemen who demanded freedom of religion on the other, was unrepairable. The last to be were lead by William the silent, Prince of Orange. Medieval weapons were still in service during the Renaissance & Civil war. Some of the medieval weapons that were still in use included Guisarme, the Halberd, the Mace and the partisan. Renaissance Weapons The Halberd was a traditional
weapon used by the Swiss. The
Halberd was designed intricately.
This weapons was traditional and
consisted of an axe-blade balanced by a pick, the head of the shaft would usually seem more like a spike.[40] This weapon was mostly used by the foot soldiers against cavalry. Halberds became obsolete when improvised pikes started to be produced in huge numbers. Meanwhile the Partisan was introduced in England in the 14th century and was used excessively and extensively in Europe and especially in France. Originally the Partisan used to be a spear with small wings added below it. Partisan is also referred to as 'Vulgur Polearm'. The sword still remained the most popular weapon during Renaissance. Thank you for your consideration Developments The Thirty years war The Thirty Years' War was one of the greatest and longest armed contests of the Renaissance period. Some people have argued that it was a series of separate wars that happened to overlap in time and space rather than one coherent sequence of military campaigns in which a clearly defined set of issues was at stake throughout. If someone looks at the Thirty Years' War in a European context, there is some truth in this argument. However, in central Europe, in particular in the Holy Roman Empire, the military and political events of the thirty years between the defenestration of Prague in May 1618 and the signing of the Westphalian peace treaties in October 1648 formed one continuous conflict and were in fact already perceived as such by most contemporaries. (1618–1648) (1568–1648) Weapons The sword however underwent many changes during this time. Many new pieces were added and the sword was designed in such a way that it could protect the hands of its owner. The two-handed sword was widely used in Western Europe. This sword was employed both by the rich and the poor. Submarine-

The Jacobite Wars Wars of the Renaissance Ships were a very big advancement in the Renaissance for the military. The most used ship type in the Renaissance was called the Caravel. The Caravel was built to hold cargo high, sail into the wind, sail faster, easier to maneuver, safety, and built for wars. They were broad-beamed ships that had 2 or 3 masts with square sails and a triangle sail. There was an overall length of the ship, (Caravel), which was 20-30 meters from end to end. Also, it could carry around 130 tons! Wow! Ships By: Aries Brett, Hunter Barber, and Twyla Himmel Military Developments Caravels were used very often
