Hundred Years War / Castilian Civil War

Illumination in the Chroniques of the historian Jean Froissart for the battle of Montiel

The mercenaries reactivated by Charles V of France in 1365 under the command of Bertrand du Guesclin secure France on March 14th in the battle of Montiel against the side allied with England and Portugal in the Castilian civil war.

Heinrich murders Peter I.

Heinrich von Trastámara , who was allied with France, captured his half-brother Peter I after the battle and murdered him with his own hands on March 23 . With that he finally wins the throne of Castile and León . The new government is now on France's side. This made Karl feel strong enough to resume the Hundred Years War against England . In the years that followed, in memory of the Battle of Crécy , the French forego a clumsy knight army and instead rely more on infantry and artillery . As a result, France made the first major artillery deployment in history.

King Ferdinand I of Portugal , with the support of England and Aragon, starts a war against Henry II to conquer Castile .
