Storyboard Text

  • The English king, Edward III, tries to claim the French throne.
  • No! The throne, land, and power belong to the French!
  • I am Edward III, King of England and rightful heir to the French throne!
  • You English are cornered, undersupplied, exhausted from disease, and outmanned! Give up!
  • The Battle of Agincourt, 1415 C.E. The French are winning.
  • B e f o r e <-- ------ A f t e r -->
  • Leading the battle, English King Henry V, and his longbowmen outmaneuver the French.
  • This is the last brilliant English victory against the French.
  • Please King Henry V, show mercy! We weren't serious when we said we'd cut your fingers off!
  • Oh God, I'm drowning!
  • But the disinherited French prince, Charles VII, is desperate to fight back, and when his siege goes sour, he accepts the help of a peasant, Joan of Arc in 1429.
  • Henry V signs a treaty to make himself temporary regent of France and marries the old French king's daughter to cement it.
  • Prince Charles VII, I am Joan of Arc. Though I may be 17 and a peasant, I will prove a valuable asset, for God has chosen me to lead the French army and save France.
  • Very well.
  • After her death in 1431, she was made a saint by the church.
  • The Siege of Orleans, 1428-1429 C.E. The French are led by Joan of Arc.
  • She's very inspiring.
  • I am Joan of Arc, and have been chosen by God to lead you in battle!
  • This string of battles were a turning point for the French.
  • 1453, the Battle of Castillon, the French have mastered the cannon, giving them the upper hand as well as their landholdings.
  • Their cannons can decimate us knights instantly!
  • We've penetrated the castle walls with the cannons!
  • This marked the end of the Hundred Years' War.
  • With all the rise in the population, death, and destruction, I feel as though we need a renaissance!
  • The French have won the Hundred Years' War, causing Europe to gradually move out of the Middle Ages.
  • As a nationalist, I feel like a part of my strong, unified country, and that I owe loyalty to my monarch.
  • Last week, parliament won the "power of the purse," granting us the right to control taxation and funding for wars!
  • Now that the pitiful English can no longer claim this land, they're begun to look overseas for exploration and trade!
