The Hundred Years' War was a series of conflicts waged from 1337 to 1453 between the Kings of France and the Kings of England and their various allies for control of the French throne, which had become vacant upon the extinction of the senior Capetian line of French kings. Although primarily a dynastic conflict, the war gave impetus to ideas of both French and English nationalism. Militarily, it saw the introduction of new weapons and tactics which eroded the older system of feudal armies dominated by heavy cavalry in Western Europe. (The knights are no longer the dominant force on battle fields due to the invention of long bows and cannons). In France, civil wars, deadly epidemics, famines and marauding mercenary armies turned to banditry reduced the population by about one-half. The French victory destabilized English society and, as a consequence, a civil war, known as the War of the Roses (1455-1485), erupted in England shortly after the end of the Hundred Years' War
