Philip VI( 1293-1350) The Fortunate

Philip VI( 1293-1350) The Fortunate

Not so fortunate. The 100 Years War began with Philip. The most devastating defeat happened in the Battle of Crécy. Before the battle was joined a storm ravaged the battlefield followed by a huge swlrling flock of panicked crows. Not a good omen. Philip died during the first wave of Bubonic Plague to hit Europe.

I am an artist with a fascination with history. Not battles per se, but the culture and personalities that shape history. Gossip is good too.
