Kings and Generals animated historical animated documentary series on the Hundred Years' War continues with a video on the aftermath of the battle of Poitiers ( • Battle of Poitiers 135... ). This video will focus not on the French resurgence during the reign of Charles V, the battle of La Rochelle fought in 1372, the Franco-Castillian alliance, and some of the deeds of the best French commander during the war - Bertrand du Guesclin, as well as the lull in the war due to the internal problem both English and French were having, alongside the change in the ruling dynasty in England.

This is a strange and difficult period to cover in the Hundred Years' War series, but we believe that the way we have covered it will allow us to transition from Crecy and Poitiers to Agincourt, Orleans, Formigny, and Castillon. Eventually, there will be a looooong stitched episode, that will feature the battles of the War of the Breton Succession, Castilian Civil War, and, most importantly, Bertrand du Guesclin's most famous battle - Pontvallain.

It's a shame that the battles of Cocherel (1364), Pontvallain (1370) and Rosebeeke (1382) aren't covered in detail. These deserve much attention imo. Their omission in contrast to the attention English victories get contribute to make it seem as if the French were tactically and technologically inferior throughout the period. In case anyone is interested: At Cocherel Bertrand du Guesclin won the day by performing two successive charges with a feigned retreat (which baited the English into pursuit) and a flanking charge with his reserves. At Pontvallain not only did the French caught the English off guard before they could fortify a favourable position in a hilltop but their advancements in horse armor undermined the effectiveness of the English arrows, leading to a succesful frontal charge. At Rosebeeke the French crushed a great Flemish army with a double Cavalry enveloptment.

Bertrand du Guesclin was quite the enigmatic figure. Born to a minor Breton nobleman, he was said to have gotten into fights as a youngster and even organized gangs of young men and lead them. Despite this poor reputation however, he did manage to earn his spurs in 1354 when he counted a raid against English marauders during the War of Breton Succession. He would go on to further distinguish himself by using guerilla tactics against the English in France and Breton, which were so successful that it brought him to the attention of Charles V. The French monarch entrusted him to lead French forces in Navarre, Breton and then Castile to help Charles's preferred candidate retain his crown. Then in 1369 when war with England resumed, Charles V appointed du Guesclin Constable of France, such a promotion was unprecedented at the time as this position had always gone to a highborn nobleman, whereas du Guesclin heralded from minor nobility.

Bertrand du Guesclin said a famous sentence in Castilla that we hear a lot here in Spain: "yo ni quito ni pongo rey, sólo ayudo a mi señor" (I don't remove or put kings, I just help my lord". He said that when after the battle of Montiel, he supossedly held the arms of Pedro the Cruel so Henry Trastamara could stab him. I believe this Bertrand du Guesclin retired to non other than Mont Saint-Michel. Not bad.

2:44 Étienne Marcel wasn't just a cloth merchant, he was Provost of the Merchants, which was basically Mayor of Paris (he was in charge of taxable income, supplying the city, etc). His revolt was closely linked with Charles of Navarre's manipulations, and the Grande Jacquerie of 1358.

@Ramiro Men There was no conflict between two provosts. There was only one provost, Étienne Marcel, and he rose up against the Dauphin with the support of Charles the Bad, trying to implement a controlled monarchy after the failure of the Estates General to impose the Great Ordinance. That coincided with the Grande Jacquerie, and there were attempts at joining forces between the Parisian bourgeois (the merchant class) and the insurgent peasants, but that failed. Marcel's revolt also failed, and he ended up massacred by a Parisian crowd after he was suspected of wanting to let English routiers which had helped him take control of the capital ravage it.

I’m honestly annoyed really. The english achieved victories that were small in the grand scheme of things. The phrase won the battle, lost the war comes to mind. Yet the amount of praise going to the english yet almost none to the french is ridiculous. French cavalry were one of the most deadliest charges in medieval history. It was simple yes, but as long as it works, why find a problem where none exists? The battle of patay saw french cavalry destroy the veteran english longbow men that they would not reconstitute again. The french won the war yet the amount of praise given to the english is just ridiculous. We should challenge that narrative more.

@V_Cpt- Phasma_V Not just some battles, but if Canada defeated an entire US army or something of equivalent strength to basically the entire French army. Issue is, the way it's put now, England is portrayed as the one that should have won the war, with their invincible longbowmen. Basically the narrative isn't nuanced at all unless Joan of Arc is involved.
Althesian 2 жыл бұрын
@V_Cpt- Phasma_V Yes england was the underdog, that is not disputed in any way. But we must give credit where its due and give praise to the french as much as we do to the english. The amount of praise and overanalyzing for poitiers, agincourt and crecy should be toned down a little and maybe focus on french victories as well. We should respect both sides equally and not spin this tale of the french being incompetent and the english as formidable.
Althesian 2 жыл бұрын
@V_Cpt- Phasma_V France still came out on top at the end. England inflicted devastating losses to the french yes, but the french still achieved ultimate strategical victory. They achieved their ultimate objective of expelling england from its french territories. That’s what matters for wars. Victory so crushing your enemies will never challenge or come to your doorstep again.
Altrantis 2 жыл бұрын
@V_Cpt- Phasma_V At Patay the English outnumbered the french by far and they were armed with their supposedly invincible archers and the french crushed them losing almost no one and killing so many archers that England would never recover them. Yet look up and see if you find any videos on Patay in youtube. Look how many videos on Agincourt there are.

Hi, thank you for this video that was very nice. If I may give you a tip, you should try to find information on Jean Chaudrier, La Rochelle's mayor who was a cunning man. After the battle, he managed to clear the city of English troops without any bloodshed. He then forced the French to give his city additional commercial privileges in exchange for opening them the gates. It could make a nice video, albeit a short one.

War in the middle ages was never about “chivalry” and “honor”. It was war. Both sides will do all they can to achieve victory. Most “knights” wouldn’t behave like what we would think as chivalrous anyway. They would plunder, rape and destroy just like many warriors before them. Chivalry about the stereotypical “knight in shinning armor” is a myth.

Surprised you didn't mention the Black Monday of 1360. On April 5th, Edward III approached Paris with a massive army, supported by his steadfast dukes of Lancaster, Warwick, and the Black Prince. The French refused battle, and so the English decimated the countryside. That night, as the English set camp, a freak lightning storm appeared in the skies, the temperature plummeted and a torrent of hail beat down on the English ranks for hours. A panic ensued as several nobles were killed by the storm, and the camp was torn apart. It is estimated that up to 1,000 men and 6,000 horses perished in the storm on Black Monday, more than were killed by the French at both the battles of Crecy and Poitiers. Edward III, convinced this was a sign from God that he had come too far, withdrew, and the Treaty of Bretigny was signed only a few weeks later. It was Black Monday that ended the Edwardian phase, not the battle of Poitiers itself.

And you really underestimated du Guesclin's fighting ability, as guerrilla combat, fortifying towns, and winning by realising france had more resources weren't only of his talents. Even without mentioning battle of Cocherel, won in an "english fashion", against higher enemy numbers, due to troop placement, great decision making, and correct estimate of forces leading to creating a reserve used in a decisive maneuver, there we're just regular fights where he shines just as bright as black Prince. Pontvallain, Chize, Rennes, multitude of smaller fights, which were just smaller fights, and not exactly guerilla which is hit-and run or cutting enemy supplies... but anyways, my 5 cents is over, props for mentioning this figure

Would be great if you mention the Portuguese Castillian war of 1383-1385 as a 100year war proxy. The Portuguese - British alliance was formed then (still in vigor) as England needed Portuguese superior navy against Castille and Portugal manpower against Castille

@Last Prussian England lost all of her possessions in France though. The only renmants of that age are the Crown Dependencies of Jersey and Guernsey, once part of the Duchy of Normandy. In the period between 1400 to 1700, England was a second-rate power, while Portugal, Spain, France, Austria, the Ottoman Empire and for a shorter time the Dutch were the pre-eminent European powers. The balance of power only started to tilt in England’s (by then already Great Britain) favour after the War of Spanish Succession in the early 1700’s. For the next 250 years approximately, Geat Britain would be a true world power, but it mustn’t be forgotten that this was not always the case, and that the British also suffered their own Agincourts and Trafalgars back in the day.

@Alvaro Gomez Vivas I agree with most of what you said, but I wouldn’t call England a second rate power in between 1400 and 1700. It was still a great power during that period, just not a hegemon like Spain and later France were. England was still a force to be reckoned with and the Spanish considered England a major threat under Elizabeth I. But you’re right that England/Britain didn’t truly become the major European power until after the Spanish Succession (although I’d say that the Seven Years War was when it really came into it’s own). Good comment though.

Surprised to hear the narrator pronounce "Skedule" in an English accent, instead of the native "shedule" for the word schedule, of course. I expect that took rehearsal or at least preparation. Great stuff, guys.

There is serious academic debate over the validity of the sacking of Limoges by the Black Prince. The evidence points to the fact that Froissart, the chronicler where this idea of sacking came about, was wrong in his assessment of the siege. They now think only 100-200 civilians were killed in the siege, not an outrageous number by medieval standards and very far away from 3000 Froissart claims.

Are you guys ever going to do the Battle of Poltava (1709)? You did the King Charles XII video where he was exiled in the Ottoman empire before he could return to Sweden following the Battle of Poltava. But you've never done a video on the battle itself. The other two videos I want you to do are the Mughals from Babur to Aurangzeb which you probably do in your Steppe People series as the Mughals were descendants of the Timurids. You will probably do a video on the Timurids before the Mughals. The last one I want to see is the Siege of Vienna (1683), but you will obviously eventually get to that in your series on the Ottoman Empire. So really its just Poltava I'm not sure when you'll get to it.

Too bad you didnt mention the Chevauché of Edward III who went to Reims to get crowned King of France officially and since the town didnt open he went to Paris to ask the French to battle him, however Charles "the Wise" applied his strategy of "la terre deserte" , the empty land strategy , where all paysans and commoners took all they had and were put inside the big fortified cities where the english couldnt harm them. Edward men's died of sickness, starvation and guerrilla tactics from Charles V men. He asked his knights to do exactly the opposite of what they were born to do, and managed to turn the fist half of the war in French position. One can imagine how hard it must have been to apply this "un honorable" strategy and yet wins..
