The Hundred Years War
In 1337, based on the strength of his claim to the French throne as a direct 
descendant of
Philip IV through his mother, Isabella of France, Edward III of England 
refused to do more
than simple (non-liege) homage for Guyenne to the French King Philip VI. 
The resulting war that started shortly afterward between France and England 
continued, with
periodic truces, until 1453. 

                         The Battle of Cricy, fought on Saturday, August 26,
                         1346 was the first of several significant battles
                         during which the longbow triumphed over
                         crossbowmen and armoured knights. (Other battles
                         were Poitiers, in 1356 and Agincourt, in 1415.)
