The paper describes how the conflicts between England and France, which began in 1337 and ended in 1453, have been dubbed The Hundred Years' War by modern historians who grouped these conflicts under the same label as a matter of convenience. The paper examines how the long struggle had a powerful effect in strengthening a sense of national identity in both England and France, and also created a mutual antagonism that has lasted ever since. The paper details how England developed a parliamentary democracy and created an empire as an offshore island, separate from the rest of Europe, however the English kings still officially claimed to be kings of France all the way down to George III.
