What as a RESULT of the Hundred Years' War .?
England and France and various allies of France
Despite many English victories in the War's early years, in the end the King of England had lost all the lands in France that he held in fief before the start of the war, …keeping only a toehold by occupying the city of Calais. So the military result was in France's favor; not by any crushing defeats of the English on the battlefield, but because England simply lacked the resources to annex or keep France occupied by itself. Its early strong position - including even the occupation of Paris itself - could only be maintained through its alliances with the Duke of Burgundy and the King of Navarre. Once these decided to switch sides and side with the French king, the French could gradually retake all the lands held before by the English.
The House of Valois was eventually victorious over that of the Plantagenets. Although England won most of the battles, it was France who actually won the war as they profited… the most from the ordeal. France gained nationalism, something vital to an empire that wants to sustain its independence. During the war, France was made up of states each ruled by a Duke with their own interests at hand. Late in the war they realised the importance to unite in order to push the English from their lands. England lost because they had insufficient numbers occupying the garrisons they conqured and this allowed the French to slowly wear them down, along with the help of great leaders such as Bertrand du Guesclin and Joan of Arc. The English were eventually repelled to the Pale of Calais. But technically the English won the war 1337-1453! IMPROVEMENT. I can't agree with the affirmation that technically the English won the war, at least starting from 1449, when the French completely overwhelmed the English also in pitched battles, thanks also to the power of their artillery led by Jean Bureau a genius in handling cannons . Some examples: Battle of Formigny, siege of Cherbourg and battle of Castillon, the last one of the war, where the English, under Talbot, were sent to attack the strong entrenched French position equipped with 300 guns of various calibre.
The war started when there was a fight over who should be king. King Edward the third believed he had higher chances since he was the nephew of a former french king. The frenc…h however supported a french cousin of the dead ruler. After nothing worked out war broke out when King Edward the third raided France.and ducks started to fly.
the war was fought by the French and English. they fought in military combat. and after a lot of time passed over 100+ years the french won.

The events leading up to this war was that the king of england William I died, But had no heir to the thorne. His son abdictaed from being the king of england because he wante…d to be the duke of normady. So the kings brother, William II, took the throne. But the duke of normady did not like his brother being the king, so he sent "raiders" to invade the coast of england. King William II retaliated by sending raiders to invae the coast of normady. This went on for 14 years. Then King William II died, So now the new king of england was Henry I because william II had no kids or wife. King Henry I invaded and took over normady, captured his brother, stabed both his eyes out, and brought him back to england until his death several years later. But the later king Phillip IV, didnt stop there. He invaded all of france, cauing unltimate feud for several 100 years. They went to war for a hundred years. So that is the ause of the hundred years war.
because the french and the English disliked each other anbd argued over their lands.

The short answer is England and France, it started in 1337 when Edward III of England claimed he had a right to the French throne. Edward and decided to go to war to become ki…ng of France. I say that is the short answer because at that time 'France' was not a country as we recognise it today- it was a collection of duchies and regions that (usually) followed a king in Paris. Often the princes and dukes would fight each other and the King. For example in the latter half of the war Henry V took advantage of a massive civil war in France between to rival landed families. Random fact for you: most historians agree that the war atuallly lasted 116 years not 100!
the common people
The Hundred Years War was a prolonged series of wars that lasted from 1337 to 1453, a total of 116 years.
The Hundred Year's War (1337-1453) is usually separated into 4 individual wars: 1. The Edwardian War (1337-1360)The Edwardian War ended with the signing of the Treaty of Brét…igny in 1360. Peace ensued for nine years. 2. The Caroline War (1369-1389)The Truce of Leulingham officially ended the Caroline War, and another period of peace lasted until 1415. 3. The Lancastrian War (1415-1429)No peace was made between the Lancastrian War and the appearance of Joan of Arc. 4. Fourth Phase (1429-1453)This war is not named officially. It is sometimes grouped together with the Lancastrian War. It is characterized as the appearance of Joan of Arc in 1429.
The Battle of Castillon is officially designed the last battle of the Hundred Years War despite the fact that England and France continued a formal war throughout the two …decades that followed. In terms of the military, this war fundamentally changed the common notion that heavy cavalry was the most powerful force an army could boast; thanks to the advent of the longbow, horseback became less of an advantageous position. With new long-distance weapons, any old commoner with a longbow could take down a highly-trained, horse bound knight.
