    [B]Having read the usual [email protected] concerning French History written by the "Anglais" and their a$$lickers, I have to point that :

    - 1. The English Kingdom was at the time,a vassal of the French Kingdom
    No, the English King was never the vassal of the French king.
    Except technically, possibly, in their role of Dukes of Normandy, Counts of Anjou etc

    - 4. French would have remained the official language of the English Court
    English was the language of the English court since Edward III.

        Wrong

        Wrong

        French was the mother tongue of every English king from William the Conqueror until Henry IV (1399–1413). (from Wikipedia)

          The English kingdom was never a vassal state of France, however the Norman English kings up to Edward 111 paid homage to the French kings for their French possessions only. The French king did not have any power over England, received no English taxes etc.

          Edward 111 ceased to pay homage and proclaimed himself king of France based on being the closest male relative under male preference primagenitor.

            I know that you, "les Anglais" are a bit touchy about this subject, but Guillaume le conquérent was duke of Normandy , Henri plantagenêt was count of Anjou and they were vassal of the French King. it's not because they became Kings of England that they didn't remain vassals of the French King.

              English replaced French as a Vernacular language under Edward III.

              And though Edward lived too long for his reputation, the cruelty of the age could not wholly efface his achievements. His victories proved to be ephemeral, but they brought time. he maintained the concensus of the realm over many decades, through war, natural disaster and unprecedented social change, allowing its institutions to grow and its sense of unity mature. It could be said: he inherited a kingdom; he bequeathed a nation.


              I'm still awaiting a link from you showing that:

              I remember that few years ago you had serious doubt that France won the 100 Years war
              Please!


              England certainly paid homage to John II who vacillated after being captured by by his 'so called' vassal.

              ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
              All human ills he can subdue,
              Or with a bauble or medal

              And many a blessing know to stew
              To make a megloamaniac bright;
              Give honour to the dainty Corse,
              The Pixie is a little shite.
