Edward III & Edward the Third: see Edward II & England & Monarchy & France

Janina Ramirez TV - Simon Schama TV - William Stubbs - David Starkey TV -

 

 

30,239.  Edward III had done the unthinkable: he had proclaimed himself king of England and France.  (England & Edward III & France)  Dr Janina Ramirez, Chivalry and Betrayal: The Hundred Years’ War I: Trouble in the Family 1337-1360, BBC 2013

 

30,240.  To claim back his rights in France he would have to take on Philip’s army.  (England & Edward III & France)  ibid.

 

30,241.  King Edward and his campaigns were hugely popular.  (England & Edward III & France)  ibid.

 

30,242.  France and England were forced to agree a truce but it was a fragile death … the plague had plunged the country into a moral panic. (England & Edward III & Plague & France)  ibid.

 

30,243.  Edward reignited the war ... This was systematic pillage and destruction ... This time Edward had not just humbled the French monarchy he had broken it.  (England & Edward III & France)  ibid.

 

 

30,293.  In the summer of 1348 the English could be forgiven for thinking themselves unconquerable.  They had vanquished the old enemies – the Scots and the French.  Their King – Edward III – seemed the most powerful ruler in Europe.  But they would be conquered ... King Death.  His weapon was plague ... Almost half the country would be dead.  (Great Britain & England & Edward III & Plague)  Simon Schama, A History of Britain: King Death          

 

 

71,067.  Edward III was not a statesman, though he possessed some qualifications which might have made him a successful one.  He was a warrior; ambitious, unscrupulous, selfish, extravagant and ostentatious.  His obligations as a king sat very lightly on him.  He felt himself bound by no special duty, either to maintain the theory of royal supremacy or to follow a policy which would benefit his people.  Like Richard I, he valued England primarily as a source of supplies.  (Edward III & England)  William Stubbs, The Constitutional History of England

 

 

112,809.  Edward [III] was the perfect gentleman … This was a quiet revolution.  (Monarchy & England & Edward III)  Monarchy by David Starkey s1e5: A United Kingdom 

 

112,810.  War with France offered the chance of rich booty … He was about to start a war that would last a hundred years.  (Monarchy & England & Edward III)  ibid.
