Transcript of Hundred Years' War

France England What Led to War? Vital Statistics The Hundred Years War raged from 1337 - 1453. A king of England provoked French by invading France from the north.
He declared himself the king of France, through rights of legal claim to the throne through his mother, Isabella of France. All of the battles of the Hundred Years War were fought in France. The Hundred Years War was fought between England and France and later Burgundy The war introduced new weapons and tactics that marked the end of medieval warfare. It also marked the beginning of French nationalism with the advent and death of Joan of Arc, who became a French icon. Weaponry Towards the end of the war, gunpowder was introduced. Since there were new technologies in casting metal it allowed for primitive cannons to be used. The Hundred Years war was the first effective use of field artillery in Europe. The Hundred Years’ War saw the introduction of the English longbow into warfare. First, its shots were so strong that they could pierce a knight's armor.

Second, the longbow had more range than a crossbow.

It was much easier and cheaper to train an archer than a knight.

The availability of archers brought about the development of a paid and standing army. Armor The King of England, Edward III, declares himself King of France through line of descent. The 100 years war saw the transition between chainmaille armor to plate armor. French law - power is inherited through the paternal line.
English law - power is inherited through the paternal and maternal line. The helmets wore then were full metal, pointed at the top, and had a face shield. Knights started using the breastplate around the beginning of the war. They also started using arm and leg armor. Shields were also popular. They were made of wood with a leather strap for the knight to hold it. Battle Over the Throne Raids France in 1356, causing warfare to erupt again
Edward commanded the right wing of the English forces at Crecy.
Named the "Black Prince" because of the black armor he was wearing during the Battle of Crecy. Weaponry Middle ages Knights used many hand held weapons such as polearms, battle axes, maces, billhooks, caltrops, flails, poleaxes, quarterstaff, and war hammers. After the French King, Charles IV, died without a heir, Edward III claimed the throne through his mother, sister of Charles IV. Due to French law, Philip VI, cousin of Charles IV, was given the throne. http://www.blackstudies.ucsb.edu/antillians/hundredyrswar.html http://ehistory.osu.edu/osu/archive/hundredyearswar.cfm?CFID=34812387&CFTOKEN=44844814&jsessionid=4630af3f2b95ec9932a96e605a347c713d32 Henry VI Land Disputes The successive kings of England, beginning with William I, controlled several areas of French land as fiefs. The French regained most of France after Edward "The Black Prince" were lost in battle. Siege weapons were the most powerful weapons at the beginning of the war. The king of France received the throne, France did not believe in lineage through the mother. Ballistas, Mangonels, Battering rams, Trebuchets, Catapults, Siege Towers were the most common siege weapons. France attempted to regain these territories, beginning with Gascony. Knights The Hundred Years' War began with the French attacking Gascony on May 24, 1337. To become a knight in the middle ages took a long time. To become a knight: 1st: A knight must be of noble blood. Edward III ("The Black Prince") died in war in 1376. Richard II, who was only a child, succeeded his grandfather. The English war effort was extremely weakened by the loss of a strong leader. 2nd: At 7 they went to be a page or little vassel. They had to basically be a servant to noble. 3rd: Become a squire (knight's servant) and train to become a knight. 4th: Become a knight during special knighting ceremony.
