The 100 Years War
Transcript of The 100 Years War
The 100 Years War
England's King Edward 3 claimed the right to the French throne. The war for the throne between England and France began in 1337.
1. The English army won three important battles, which were:
The Battle of Crecy
The Battle of Poitiers
The Battle of Agincourt
2. The French army began to lose hope. In 1420, they signed a treaty. The treaty stated that the English king would inherit the French crown at the death of the French king, Charles the 6th.
3. But then Joan of Arc, a 17 year old French peasant girl, led the French army into battle on May 7, 1429. She won the Battle of Orleans.
Because of France's victory, Charles the 6th was crowned king on July 17, 1429.
5. In 1430, Joan was captured in battle. She was tied to a stake and burned to death on May 30, 1431 by the English.
7. The war ended in 1453. The French had won.
Joan's bravery inspired many people to fight for France.
After the war, people in both France and England saw their king as a national leader instead of a feudal lord. There was a feeling of nationalism, which weakened feudalism.
