Hundred Years War


  • Intro

    The Hundred Years War between France and England took place from 1337 to 1453. The Chronicles of Jean Froissart are famous for their vivid descriptions of this period. They cover the years 1325 to 1400 and deal mainly with the events of the Hundred Years War. Froissart sought out and interviewed eye-witnesses of the incidents he describes and his Chronicles are full of colourful detail. This manuscript edition of Froissart's Chronicles was produced in the late 1400s. Shown here is a miniature illustrating the English force led by Edward III's son, Thomas, Earl of Buckingham, landing in France in 1380.
