How the hundred years war changed europe

What I know:

1.The Hundred Years War was between Britain and France.

2.Reduced the population drastically.

My findings

1.The Hundred Years' War was a time of rapid military evolution.Before the Hundred Years' War, heavy cavalry was considered the most powerful unit in an army, but by the war's end, this belief had shifted.The heavy horse was replaced by the use of the longbow and firearms.

2.The war stimulated nationalistic sentiment.The Hundred Years' War speeded up the process of transforming France from a feudal monarchy to a centralized state.

3.Bubonic Plague and warfare depleted the overall population of Europe in the 14th and 15th centuries. In the Paris region, between 1328 and 1470 the population was reduced by at least two-thirds.

The Battle of Sluys during the Hundred Years' War is depicted in a miniature from a manuscript copy of Jean Froissart's Chronicles.
