The Hundred Years' Wye (Mean English: Hundred Years' War) was a wye between the Kingdom of England, the and the Kingdom of France, with a few handings from the Kingdom of Castile and the Kingdom of Portugal, in the 14th and 15th-Yearhundred (1337-1453); it lasted for more than a hundredyear, hence its name. The wye broke out forthy-that many bickerigns, such as flites about who would become the King of France, were not makedow to settle.
After the death of Carl IV of France, the last son of Philip the Fair, in 1328, the last king to be a belonger of House Capet was no longer in being. Two to the French Gifseat stepped forthward; the first foreholder was King Edward III of England, being the of Guyenne and the earl of Ponthieu. Edward ettled to forehold the French Gifseat since Carl's sister was his mother, who gave birth to him after she wed with Edward II. Withal, since all of the woman that Carl wed had not given birth to any sons, Edward saw himself as the true foreholder of the French Gifseat. The second foreholder of the French Gifseat was Philip, Earl of Valois, who was an eldson to the forheawen French king Philip III.
The French hated the thought of even putting Edward upon the gifseat whatsoever; later on, a folkforsaming was held in France in order to choose who would become the new King of France; it was sealed that Philip would be the one whom was wreathed as king for that the French would baringly not let an Englishman have their gifseat. It should be said that the folkforsaming underpinned their wisdom on an old Frankish Law, known as Salish Law, which quethed that all holdings may not fall from a woman (it was said aforehand that Carl VI's sister was the mother of Edward III) ; as saith the French, this made Edward's foreholding of the gifseat untrue. At first, Edward seemed to have welcomed Philip's rise to the gifseat; however, when Philip VI took Guyenne for himself, Edward withdrew his welcoming for Philip and quethed him as an untrue king, thinking that he would have been a better foreholder than Philip. Thereupon, he sent a ferd of men to Flanders.
