"Two wars between France and England helped usher in (and usher out) knights and feudalism.

In 1066, the Norman Conquest when France's William the Conqueror invaded England. He used knights to help win, and the Normans built castles in England and introduced feudalism.

Several centuries later, William's descendants claimed a legal right to the French throne. When France started retaking territory controlled by England in France, the Hundred Years' War (1337-1453) broke out. In battle after battle, French knights were mowed down by English longbowmen that fired arrows capable of piercing armor. The turning point occurred when a teenage peasant girl named Joan of Arc told the heir to the French throne that she had been sent by God to save France and to give her an army. He did, and she scored several victories… but was then betrayed and burnt at the stake by England…."

I wonder if there is a "Drunk History" version of the Hundred Years War on You Tube. Might be just about as good.
