Kit# 9866 - Foot Knight, 1400'S
Valiant Miniature Kit# 9866 - Foot Knight, 1400'S. The signing, by Richard II of England and Charles VI of France, of the Treaty of Paris in 1396 was meant to end the Hundred Years' War. However, civil strife in both countries, as well as the rest of Europe, during this period, made the peace treaty a mockery. Intrigue and numerous small clashes resulted. Upon the death of Charles, in 1415, Henry VI of England laid claim to the Throne of France. On August 12 he took an army of 12,000 and invaded France. After the brilliant victory at Agincourt on October 25, 1415, the English were cautious to follow up their success, resulting in their eventual expulsion, 38 years later, from French soil. NOTE: Our illustration is of the Earl of Oxford; however, minimal research will lead you to various examples of the heraldry of this period.
