Politics and world events

Hundred Years War

  • October: The English King Edward III. terminates the feudal relationship with the French King Philip VI. after he confiscated his property in France. The Hundred Years War between France and England begins.
  • Walter Mauny is named Admiral of the North . He is responsible for the defense of all East English ports between the Thames estuary in the south and Berwick in the north. In addition, the king gives him command of the vanguard of the expeditionary army with which he wants to land in the Netherlands. To do this, he is supposed to escort the cargo ships with his ships that are supposed to bring English wool for sale to the Netherlands. The campaign to France is to be financed by selling this wool. At the beginning of November Mauny sets out with a fleet of 85 ships with 1,450 soldiers, 2,200 seamen and a number of important merchants. On the way to Holland, the fleet surprisingly attacks the Flemish port of Sluis , but is repulsed.
