    Why no question about the most important weapon of the war? or as to where Sir John Falstaff was a hero [​IMG] ?

    You forgot the most important question: "How long did the Hundred Years War last?" ((hint: it wasn't 100 years))

    Actually the "war" was about 100 years. Interspersed within the 116 year were 15+ years of "peace". (Example: when Henry V was proclaimed heir of the French throne through the Treaty of Troyes and hostilities ceased for a few years)

    Maybe they COULD count and it is US that can't.

    Not sure but here goes:-

    Round #1: 1337-1360 Treaty of Bretigny

    Round #2:1369-1384? I seem to recall that a peace of sorts was signed during Richard II's reign

    Round #3: 1415-1420 Agincourt to Troyes

    Round #4: c.1422-1453 Death of Henry V through Joan of Arc to Castillon and loss of Bourdeaux

    More like the 75 Years' War

    Yours in Christ

    Matt
