The Hundred Years War
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     The Hundred Years War was a long series of conflicts between England and France. In a way it was the big finale to the fighting that had gone on throughout the entire Middle Ages as one tribe after another tried to invade and rule various parts of Europe.
 
2     Before the beginning of the Hundred Years War, the Vikings had conquered a large part of France and named it Normandy. Then the Vikings from Normandy (France) had conquered England. Then, the Anglo-Normans (the Normandy Vikings who now ruled England) had re-conquered Normandy. Then, France had taken Normandy back.
 
3     England wanted France back. Isabella, the mother of King Edward III, especially wanted it back, since she had big plans for her son to rule a kingdom that combined England and France. Since the king of France had just died, leaving no successor, Isabella claimed that her son Edward III should be king of France. Of course, France objected, and that was the beginning of the Hundred Years War.
