The Hundred Years’ War had started because of Charles IV, the king of France, he had died without a son. Meaning no one could succeed him. However, Edward III, who was also the king of England at the time, believed that he was the closest living relative to Charles IV. He believed that he had the right to the throne. However, Charles IV also had a cousin named Philip VI who also thought he should be the king. This started the war between the French and the English that lasted 116 years, known as the Hundred Years War.
