Game Groups > Historical Conflict: Hundred Years War

This group includes all the games that take place in France and the Low Countries between 1337 and 1453. Titles centered around the historical figure of Joan of Arc (Jeanne d'Arc) apply here. Games that give you control of one of the belligerent kingdoms, be it allies of France or England, with the primary goal of participating in the Hundred Years War, also apply to this group. Games that take place in England of the same period do not belong here, unless the player will eventually set foot on French soil.

Background: The Hundred Years War is a series of destructive wars between the House of Plantagenet (England) and House of Valois (France) waged over a variety of reasons, of which the main one is inheriting the French crown and tenures that depend on it. The term "Hundred Years War" was invented in the 19th century and is largely symbolical, as the conflict itself lasted for 116 years (1337 - 1453) according to most historians.

The Hundred Years War initially developed in England's favor, as France was almost entirely occupied by its armies at one point. The battles were separated by frequent periods of truce and dishonest armistices. They were fought primarily in France and the Low Countries, but skirmishes triggered by the French armies on the south coast of England and by their allies, the Scotts in the North also happened. The greatest battles took place at Crécy (1346), Poitiers (1356), Agincourt (1415), Orléans (1428-29).
