The Origins of the Hundred Years War: The Angevin Legacy 1250–1340

Malcolm Vale


In this study of Anglo-French relations in the century before the Hundred Years War, the text examines the legacy of continental rule bequeathed by the Angevin kings of England to their Plantagenet successors. The book explores the sources of Anglo-French tension which ultimately led to the breakdown of feudal and diplomatic relations between the two greatest powers in western Europe.

Keywords: Anglo-French relations, Hundred Years War, Angevin kings, Plantagenet, feudal, diplomatic relations
