The Hundred Years War

The Hundred Years War was connected conflicts between England and the Kings of France, these battles lasted from 1337 to 1453.

The war lasted not 100 years but 116 years

The Hundred year war was actually put on hold for a while while the Black death of the Bubonic plague hit.

Edwardian, Caroline, and Lancastrian were the names of the Hundred years war because it was split into three separate wars.

Was started because of a little dispute between the French and the English for years

For the most part every argument was about control of the valuable wool trade, areas of land, and support for Scotland by the French.

The small battles only lasted within a few hours.

The longbow was the deadliest weapon, and was kind of like a bow.

In the war the Knights were not used as much because people were more useful than having  to find knights.

Death of the French knights left French monarchy great in strength and power
