The Edwardian War was a fight for the French throne between English king Edward lll and French king Phillip Vl.
It lasted from 1337-1360 and ended with a treaty giving Edward many pieces of land.
The Caroline War, 1369-1389 began after a decade of peace when Edward IV refused to go to Paris and King Charles V of France wanted land back.
Their successors Richard II and Charles VI made peace in 1389 and France was allowed to keep regained lands.
1415-1453, the Lancastrian War began with England's Henry V invading Normandy. His brother John was crowned in Paris.
French leaders such as Joan of Arc were strong enough to take back English territories. The war ended with a treaty.
Joan of Arc was a young but legendary French hero. She was born a peasant but claimed to follow God's calling and led many victories.
She was sold to the English and burned at the stake at the age of 19. The Church later called her a saint and a martyr.
One effect of the war was an increased sense of nationality. The war was based on family dynasties and the French throne, but national pride between the English and French people added to and was created by the conflict.
Another effect was improvement of warfare. Knights and cavalry proved too expensive, and longbows could pierce through armor.
