|Q:||Ask a Question about What was the Hundred Years War?|
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.
