What was the Hundred Years War?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What was the Hundred Years War?       
What was the Hundred Years War? The Hundred Years' War began in 1337 and continued for more that a century. It was not a single war, but rather a series of skirmishes between France and England. It began when the English tried to dominate France and the French in turn tried to confiscate lands occupied by the English. The English invaded France and won a great battle at Crecy.

The British archers with their longbows defeated a much larger army of knights, marking the beginning of the end for mounted knights. Further battles followed, but in 1396 Richard II of England married the daughter of Charles VI of France, establishing a 20-year truce that finally ended the fighting.

England and France fought over French territory which was occupied by the English for more than a century. Even after the end of the Hundred Years War, occasional fighting continued until the English were finally expelled from France.
