    Battle of Crécy - August 1346

    by Kettleman Updated Jul 7, 2006

    Way back in 1346, right at the start of the Hundred Years War, the English legitimate right to the throne of France was refused and Edward III took and English army to fight the French across northern France.

    England already owned large tracts of land in France by the marriage of Eleanor of Aquitaine to Henry II, King of England.
    The battle was fought on the outskirts of Crécy-en-Ponthieu and all that there is to show for it is a paltry car-park, disgusting toilets and a graffiti covered “Moulin d’Edward” on the spot where Edward was reputed to have stood.

    I suppose as the French lost so why bother?
