I am entitled to the throne of England. I don't want to be the king of France.
God told me to lead the French army to save France!
When the French king died in 1337, his nephew, King Edward III was decided to be the next king of France but King Edward III didn't want to be the king of France, he was entitled to the throne. Soon this led to the Hundred Years' War.
The French army lost the fight due to the geographic features and less advanced weapons. Despite the French having at least 50,000 men, they lost to the English. The rest of the army was captured and ordered them all killed because their small number of people could not guard the French.
The French signed a treaty with Henry V and became the temporary ruler of France. Charles VIII was very desperate to get rid of the English and get France back. When a 17 year old girl named Joan of Arc claimed that God told her to lead the French army and save France.
Later she was captured and burned at a stake. She was eventually made a saint at a church.
After the war, Europe began to move out of the middle ages and more into the Renaissance. People also began thinking of themselves as a unified country owing loyalty to monarchs. The English also began to look overseas for exploration and trading.
