Well they didn't do that great. England went to France. France never went to england
Rofl. William the Conqueror was from Normandy, France.
Normandy As in Norse. They spoke french with the kind of accent that would cause the royal court to break into tears, and that was about it. And again, ages before the 100 years war
Which had been given to the Norse raider not that much earlier, and a deceleration of war by one nation on another requires that the king (or head of state for that matter) stand behind it. William was a renegade Duke, nominally under the French, who invaded England and had himself crowed king.
I am well aware that the Normans came from Normandy, by the way.
William the Conquerors family had lived in France for over 5 generations (maybe more) and intermarried with the French as well. He was far more French than Norse.
Did you spell "you" wrong on purpose in the thread title?
I've not seen it, but it sounds like an interesting twist on the Jeopardy! idea of how much you know.
I do watch Jeopardy! from time to time; it seems more interesting to me. And I really shouldn't comment, not having seen this particular show, but it seems the newer shows are all smoke and mirrors over content.
I thought yesterdays episode was especially odd...
For the 500,000 dollar question:
Who did England fight during the 100 years war?
She immediatly discarded France, then Italy, then Russia, and went with Spain.
I mean France..... England's most hated enemy, discarded like a mere pawn! In her defense she claims that France was in no shape or power to hold off England for that long.
