War Is Declared
Episode 1  |  The History Channel  |  November 6, 2019

In 1328, following the death of the last Capetian king, Charles IV, the crown of France passed to the Valois dynasty. That infuriated the young English king, Edward III, who saw himself as the legitimate heir to the French throne. That rivalry between the French and English led to the longest, bloodiest conflict in European history: the Hundred Years' War. From the battlefield of Crecy to the Basilica of Saint Denis, the epic historical reconstructions and gripping narratives of this series reveal how the lust for power and personal obsessions of princes redrew the frontiers of France and other European nations.
