England - Conflict - Norman Plantagenet

Norman-Plantagenet 1060 - 1485

The Plantagenet period in England, which lasted from the late 12th century to the mid-15th century, was marked by frequent conflict and warfare. During this time, England was involved in a number of significant wars and battles, both at home and abroad. One of the most notable conflicts during this period was the Hundred Years' War, which began in 1337 and saw England fight against France for control of territory on the continent. This long and bloody war lasted for over a century and involved many famous battles, including the Battle of Crecy and the Battle of Agincourt. In addition to the Hundred Years' War, the Plantagenet period saw England involved in other major conflicts, such as the Barons' War, a civil war fought between King Henry III and rebellious barons in the mid-13th century. The period also saw significant military campaigns in Wales and Scotland, as well as a number of smaller conflicts and skirmishes. Overall, the Plantagenet period in England was marked by significant military conflict, both at home and abroad, that helped shape the course of English history.
