I guess this Knight is done for now. Part of my problem with fully finishing this unit is I still need to research what the heck colors some of these knights smaller bits of kit they’re wearing should be. Areas like the back of the legs and hands etc.
This might be enough slack at the elbow. At least it will do for now while I extend back up towards my shoulder. I’ll be leaving it split underneath to put in an expansion underneath. #maille #chainmail #armormaking #larp #hema #fantasy #armor #armour #creative #medieval #author #cosplay #knight #historical #reenactor #reenactment #history #military #hundredyearswar #mailarmor #cotedemaille #historicalcraft #mittelalter #14thcentury
Have you EVER heard about him? Thomas Beaufort, Count of Perche.He went unnoticed through history because of his short and tragic life.His mother bore between 1401-1406 5 children in row, he was one of them. Born (most probably in January-February)1405 as fourth child, third son of remarkable man called John Beaufort (1373-1410),1th Earl of Somerset- son of Duke of Lancaster, brother of Henry IV, uncle of Henry V,cousin of Richard II. Mother of boy was respected and cherished wife of Lord Somerset,12 years younger Lady Margaret Holland (1385-1439),niece of Richard II. Boy Thomas already had older siblings Henry (1401),John(1403),Joan(1404), in 1406 welcoming another brother Edmund and in 1409 sister Margaret.Thomas was only 5 when his father died and 6 when his still young and attractive mother remarried.Her chosen one in love match was cousin of her children,her nephew by marriage, favourite son of Henry IV, 23 years young Thomas,Duke of Clarence who took his new family with him to France,training and educating his stepson/cousins in person.Clarence did not take part on the battle of Agincourt in 1415 as he together with Warwick took important captives from France to England,handling ransoms.He anyway wanted overreach brother's success what led to disastrous battle of Bauge in March 1421 in which Clarence was slaughtered and 2 his stepsons were taken captives. John and Thomas.Eldest Henry died in 1418 in Rouen and Edmund was in March 1421 too young for battle.Thomas was released in 1430,with 25.His mother and paternal uncle Cardinal Beaufort paid for his freedom horrendous amount.Thomas had spirit of his uncle Exeter after whom he was named Thomas,and so he returned full of energy and ambition to France in 1430 being granted by his cousin Duke of Bedford war torn county of Perche.Thomas then (with his brother Edmund) took active part in military actions in 1431.On 3 October 1431 in Louviers anyway fate struck hard again and Thomas died.With 26,after 1year of freedom #somerset #historylover #history #hundredyearswar #beaufort #plantagenets #medieval #england
This game again. You know who they are? He was born in 1387, and was not meant to be heir of his father but his brother Gilbert. But then fate struck.He was noted military commander during the Hundred Years' War. He was the most renowned in England and most feared in France of the English captains in the last stages of the conflict. Known as a tough, fierce, cruel, and quarrelsome man. Called the "English Achilles" and the "Terror of the French". He was enemy of Jeanne d'Arc in field. His father-in-law Jeanne's jailor. The first wife of him with whom he had 6 children was his stepsister. The lady beside him here is his second wife with whom he had 5 children including son who died at his side in 1453. She was thr eldest daughter of richest earl of England, born in 1404. Till 1425 she was her father's heiress. She stayed father's favourite daughter anyway for the rest of his life. In the same year/1425 she married the man on the left. She bore him 5 children. She persuaded him somehow/with help of her father/ in 1434 to take out a part of his estates in Gloucestershire and Shropshire from his inheritance (reserved for his eldest son and heir from first marriage to stepsister) and to put it into the inheritance of their eldest son (from father's second marriage (to this portrayed lady). Both sons shared the same name. Name of their father. This Lady ordered a very known "Pageant" for her father to honour him and his ancestors #england #english #historylover #history #hundredyearswar #medieval #middleages #warwick

The battle of #loudonhill was a pivotal turning point in #robertthebruce campaign to take full control of his kingdom. The Battle of Loudoun Hill was fought in May 1307 between a Scots force led by Robert the Bruce and the English commanded by Aymer de Valence. It took place beneath Loudoun Hill, in Ayrshire, and ended in a victory for Bruce. It was Bruce's first major military victory. #hundredyearswar #battleforscotland #robertthebruce #onescot #trghe #battle ##Stw2018 #scotspirit #VisitScotland #TRGHE #tourism #golf #heritage #history #trends #2018 #ScotlandIsNow #lovemytown #edinburghlife #hiddenedinburgh
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, YOUR GRACE 👑On this day 1421 King Henry VI, the only son of Henry V and Catherine de Valois, was born in Windsor Castle. He never met his father who was campaigning in France and died in August 1422. His reign started when he was of tender age of 9 months. His uncles John of Bedford and Humphrey of Gloucester (father's brothers) tried to keep their brother's and then their nephew's French territories, as well as to provide for England. Henry self was placed into the hands and care of personal friend of his father Richard de Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick, as was the will of dying Henry V. Little Henry so lived, as it was wont separated from his mother Catherine who then started a new family, giving Henry new brothers: Edmund and Jasper. Henry married with 22/23 French princess Margaret of Anjou with whom he had one son Edward, born in 1453. In August 1453 Henry anyway suffered mental breakdown, first of some, most probably suffering from cathatonic schizophrenia. His reign proved to be a troubled one for a multitude of reasons, England descending into Civil War. Henry was murdered as prisoner in 1471, on the orders of Edward IV. This is the portrait from the NPG #historylover #history #otd #plantagenet #plantagenets #henryvi #lancaster #medieval #middleages #king #english #england #englishhistory #hundredyearswar #warsoftheroses
I hope we aren't tired of the Agincourt shelf yet because I keep adding stuff to it. The green guy has this weird translucent mace and a full helmet but the color is good for Sir Thomas Erpingham. The new mounted guy with the leopard head and the lance is supposed to represent Arthur of Richmond. They made his brother John of Brittany, but he wasn't there at Agincourt, and it will bother me. I might buy him just for his horse, though. I also switched my guys representing York and Gloucester. #nerd #toys #toyphotography #toyunion #toptoyphotos #toyartistry #Agincourt #sirthomaserpingham #thomaserpingham #dukeofrichmond #knights #gloucester #dukeofgloucester #actionfigures #actionfigurephotography #papo #papotoys #safaritoys #safaritoysltd #armor #knight #henryv #shakespeare #hundredyearswar #horses #horse #boucicault #alencon #dukeofoxford
#NewBlogPost Edwardian War ~Background Story {link in bio}
Counting Down to Christmas woth Historical Figures 5/24: Joan of Arc Jeanna d'Arc, or Joan of Arc as she's also known, is the patron saint of soldiers and of France. She lived during the fifteenth century, and died at the age of nineteen. When she was a young girl she claims to have received a vision from the angel Michael, Saint Margret and Saint Catherine, telling her to help France fight against the English as well as support the uncrowned king Charles VII. He sent her to Orlèans, where she helped ending a siege in just nine days, and after that and some other victories she managed to get him a long awaited coronation, lifting the French spirits and helping them to eventual victory. All did not end well for Jeanne though, as she was captured by the English after a brief truce. They brought her to Rouen, and held her there for several months, despite several rescue attempts and promises from king Charles that he would extract vengence for what they did to her. She was put on trial for heresy and crossdressing, though the real reasons were political rather than religious, and sentenced to death, despite little evidence and the Englishs failure to abide by proper rules of a trial for the time. She was burned at the stake, a cross held up before her at her own request. After her death they burned her twice more, to reduce her body to ashes that were then spread in the Seine. . . . #christmas #christmascountdown #france #french #joanofarc #jeannedarc #hundredyearswar #english #england #british #execution #history #womenshistory #herstory #charlesvii #maidenoforleans
Do you know him? Born in December 1402 as only son of 5th Earl of Stafford and Anne of Gloucester/so he was grandson of Thomas of Woodstock and great-grandson of Edward III. He was a significant figure during the Hundred Years' War and the Wars of the Roses. During the 100 Years' War he was rumoured to have tried to stab Jeanne d'Arc. He also was rumoured to have sent his men to assault her in prison. He was killed on 10 July 1460 at Northampton while acting like a bodyguard of Henry VI. Privately he got married in October 1424 to Lady Anne Neville (1411-1480) with whom he had at least 10 children. He was one of the richest magnates (the second richest after Duke of York) of his time, known (with his Lady) for collecting the books. His son and heir married Margaret Beaufort (1437-1472), daughter of Edmund Beaufort, Duke of Somerset who btw was first cousin of his wife Anne. You surely know by now who this man is..🙌🏼 #historylover #history #england #stafford #duke #hundredyearswar #warsoftheroses #jeannedarc #joanofarc #english #england #medieval #middleages #englishhistory #buckingham #edwardiii #plantagenets
#Repost @imagoimperii ・・・ 2 years ago we released our full length "Legendaria". Before digging into the new "Fate of a King" let's take a trip into its predecessor. The first song is "Black Prince", about the hystorical figure of the english prince Edward (son of King Edward III). His nickname comes from the black of his armour. He fought in the Hundred Years War and died in a military campaign in Spain. He's famous for his tomb in Canterbury's Cathedral.

2 of 5 Bretonnian knights. Knight on the left I highlighted the face and now almost done. Knight on the right still needs more shading/highlighting, and will add charges.
Excited for Time of Legends: Joan of Arc by @mythicgames ? 🔮🏹🗡🛡🔮 In honour of the Wave 1 Kickstarter content arriving at the Mythic Games office (and the Leo Live unboxing today at 7pm GMT), I thought it ideal to get some more of the minis @thisisazinsta showed me at the London Mythic Takeover up here. 🔮🏹🗡🛡🔮 I'm not sure of the specific sculptors of these gorgeous minis, but the painter is none other than @seb.lavigne. He's been busy painting up Mythic Games Reichbusters miniatures, so if you love amazingly painted Weird War II models, check him out! 🔮🏹🗡🛡🔮 Going through these old photos from playing the demo copy of the game, and now the unboxing today, has got me fired up for JoA arriving in a few months. I'm thinking of learning how to DM (D&D) in the new year, so should've picked up the role-playing book for Joan of Arc - hindsight is a beautiful thing. Regardless, so so keen to see more as we move closer to fulfilment. 🔮🏹🗡🛡🔮 There are a few more Kickstarters I'm waiting on (hopefully Escape the Dark Castle arrives this month) - any games you're eagerly awaiting from Kickstarter? 🔮🏹🗡🛡🔮 #timeoflegendsjoanofarc #boardgame #boardgames #bgg #boardgamegeek #analoggames #tabletopgames #nerd #geek #joanofarc #hundredyearswar #miniatures #painted #minis #angel #knight #medieval #wargaming #kickstarter #unboxing #england #france #myth #strategy #miniaturepainting #legend #skeleton #unicorn #model #fly

Wednesday and War ! . A Hundreds Years War The English in France (1337—1453) A well-written, though necessarily brief, history of the conflicts known as the 'Hundred Years War'. Writer and historian Desmond Seward devotes enough attention to the well-known personalities involved without losing sight of the overall picture. The book is neither hagiographic nor revisionist, and presents the career of many luminaries (Henry V and Joan of Arc in particular) in an unromantic light. Some accounts of lesser-known engagements and other bridging passages can be hard to follow due to the number of named participants and the necessary truncation, but over all this is a valuable introduction to an engaging subject. . Name: A Hundred Years War Author: Desmond Steward Genre : War/ Nonfiction Cover: Paperback Price : Rs 750/ $ 10.63 . . . . . . #warbook #rarebook #hundredyearswar #nonfiction #warhistory #selectbbookshop #bookreview #bookinstagram #selectbookshopcollection #rarebookstore #rarebookcollector #rarebookcollection #rarebookdealer #rarebooksofinstagram #rarebookshop #rarebooks
I had to wait to receive a darker gold spool of Au Ver A Soie, Soie Perlee, before I could finish the fleur de lys on Joan’s skirt. I realized that the 2nd shade of gold I had on hand was too brassy would have looked wonky if I had used it for the shaded portions of the fleurs. After talking to a very helpful lady at Needle In A Haystack, Alameda CA, we determined that the lighter gold I was using did not have a darker shade in the Soie Perlee color range. It was in the green/olive range, and the only thing that might have worked was discontinued. I am in @needlenthreadmc ’s Facebook group so I queried that resourceful group. Someone was kind enough to track down a spool of the discontinued shade I needed from a StitchingShop.com in Denver, which was promptly shipped to me in New Orleans, et voilà!

Battle of Poitiers, 1356...There are days when the course of the history of the world—or a large part of it, anyway—depends on the character, emotions, decisions, and actions of a few men in a single place. September 19, 1356, was one of those days. That morning, King Jean II of France looked southwards over the fields of Maupertuis, near the abbey of Nouaillé, not far from the city of Poitiers. Edward Plantagenet, Prince of Wales and Aquitaine, known in later days as the Black Prince, stood opposite him. Both men were ready for battle, and each hoped that the impending clash of armies would result not just in a tactical victory, but in a strategic one that would lead directly to a favorable peace. #hundredyearswar #poitiers #france #england #valois #plantagenet #historylover #history #medieval #battle #middleages
I started working on some Perry Agincourt plastic foot knights again too😁
[This day in history] 3December1368 Charles VI of France was death. Charles VI was a psycho. So the nobles wanted to control him. Then they declared the civil war. Also the maillotin was rioting in Paris against the heavy tax on trade. Additionally, British declared the Hundred Years' War again. France failed. He was forced to sign the treaty of Troyes. Finally, Charles VI was death on 21 October 1422. #history #thisdayinhistory #todayinhistory #todayhistory #historytoday #onthisdayinhistory #frenchhistory #france #fr #British #Britian #britianhistory #uk #hundredyearswar #charlesvi #Medieval #Medievaleurope #Medievalhistory #middleage
First of 5 Bretonnian Foot Knights I’m currently working on. Mostly he just needs a Shield now. Although knowing myself, I’ll end up doing a lot more work to him than that before calling him finished😁
Thinking of finally finishing painting the last 5 Bretonnian Foot Knights. They been sitting around my table for months now constantly ignored😂 The hardest part of painting these is deciding on their color and design. Once I’ve figured that out, painting them is not hard🎨😁
The stunning nave inside the Cathédrale Sainte-Croix d'Orléans. [See my IG post from May 4 for an exterior photo.] As with many of France’s beautiful Gothic cathedrals, this one took a long time to build. Compared to the 182 years it took to complete Notre Dame in Paris, the current cathedral in Orléans took 228 years (1601-1829) to finish. It replaced a destroyed cathedral dating back to 1278. If we’ve been IG friends for awhile, then you probably know of my fascination with French history, especially the Middle Ages and one its most famous heroes — Joan of Arc. At the age of 17, Joan attended mass inside this cathedral on May 2, 1429, just a few days after arriving with troops to drive the English out of the besieged town during the Hundred Years’ War. During the many months before her arrival, the town had only made 1 (failed) attempt to repel the English. But just 10 days after she arrived, a new attempt was made — and it succeeded. Historians still debate whether Joan of Arc ever actually engaged in battle herself. Depictions of her usually show her riding a horse on the battlefield while holding a banner high. At her trial for heresy in 1431 in Rouen (which led to her execution), Joan of Arc stated “I had a banner of which the field was sprinkled with lilies; the world was painted there, with an angel at each side; it was white of the white cloth called boccassin; there was written above it, I believe, JHESUS MARIA; it was fringed with silk.” (Side note: she was actually shot in the neck with an arrow while carrying that banner.) But, whether or not she ever physically fought, it is beyond dispute that she was the symbol of hope and faith that the downtrodden French troops needed to turn the tide. 🛡⚔️⛓ . . . #orleans #orleansfrance #loirevalley #cathedralesaintecroixdorleans #orleanscathedral #gothic #gothicarchitecture #cathedrale #cathedral #catedral #church #joanofarc #jeannedarc #france #hundredyearswar #middleages #medieval #history #historynerd #architecture #architecturephotography #architecturelovers #travelphotography #travelblogger #travelbloggers #travels #travel #melissastravelsnearandfar
#OnThisDay the 1st December in 1420 during the #HundredYearsWar .

I have been trying to add to the depth of this piece in several ways. 1. by differentiating foreground and background with matte (cotton) and sheen (silk) threads. 2. by using felt to back the muslin, so that there is a slight softness that I can use for height. 3. by padding satin stitch with rows of backstitches beneath. Here you see the armor that I want to be lifted above the level of the skirt. I did several rows of backstitching in the areas that I wanted to raise, and then satin stitched over them. To be honest, I didn’t get much of the effect I was after, probably because I tend to maintain a pretty taut tension in my stitches so they flatten more than they would if I allowed a fraction of slack into them. Unfortunately, I didn’t think of that in advance and so there is only the slightest depth to the layers of armor. Next time, I’ll try padding the front of the fabric with felt instead of the back. Ah well. Stitch and learn. ⚜️ #auverasoie #soieperlee #soiedalger ⚜️#joanofarc #jeannedarc #orleansfrance #medieval #orleans #hundredyearswar #saintjoan #saintjoanofarc ⚜️ #wip #embroidery #embroidered #handembroidered #surfaceembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #modernembroidery #broderie #brodado #embroideryart #fiberart #embroiderylove #embroideryinstaguild #stitchersofinstagram #embroidelicious #makersgonnamake
The battle of Agincourt/ Azincourt was a major battle in the hundred years' war when King Henry of England led his army which was probably around five thousand knights, men-at-arms and archers against the constable of France, Charles d'Albret, Comte de Dreux, whose army's size estimates vary widely from thirty thousand to as high as a hundred thousand strong. It was a decisive victory for the English army, and it was because of the English Longbow. This re-telling is from the words of of a great historian Bernard Cornwell. #historicalfiction #history #hundredyearswar #bernardcornwell #bookread #bookph #bibliophileph
Starting to retouch my Chevaliers de Honor unit. This the first one I’m reworking. Mostly I want to clean up the lines and get rid of all the pen marks. They’re 20 year old paint jobs and should just repaint them now that I paint better but I really really don’t feel like it lol.

The property of Blickling Hall was initially owned by Sir John Fastolf of Caister in Norfolk, who made a fortune in the Hundred Years’ War. However it eventually ended up in the hands of the Boleyn family. While the exact details remain unknown, it is highly likely that all three Boleyn children, including Anne, were born at the property. https://number10theabbey.co.uk/apartments/blickling-hall/ (copy into browser) #BlicklingHall #Hotel #HotelDesign #PropertyPhotography #ClassyInterior #Hotels #Vacation #ArchitectureDose #PropertyDesign #LuxuryHotel #LuxuryLiving #LuxuryLifestyle #PropertyGoals #HotelView #Luxury #Lifestyle #HotelRooms #HotelStay #PictureOfTheDay #Corporate #Business #Traveller #Getaway #Travel #Interiors #Design #History #Boleyn #HundredYearsWar #Caister
By historians and authors much neglected lady. Actually my ❤ for so many reasons. One day, while off the job market, living down at the seaside of Montenegro, I will write a novel about her, and her only. Not about her grande glorious father Richard de Beauchamp, not about her almost feminist mother Elizabeth de Berkeley. Not about her first a bit shallowly proud husband Thomas de Ros who wedded and bedded her when she was just a bit more than a very young girl. So neither about her second glamorous one, Edmund Beaufort who got her into the real whirlwind of dysfunctional ruling dynasty and later a civil war and brought in the end only loss and suffering upon her. Nor third obscure one, Sir Walther de Rokesley, not much more than an educated servant. Not about her tragic children, both daughters and sons, from first and second marriage. Or stupidly famous half-sister Anne (only thanks to her Kingmaker husband and daughters who made grande marriages). Nope. Simply and only about her. To let the others see what I see in her. That she was much more than grey obediant daughter, dutiful wife/ means breeding machine...to show how much did she inherit from her extraordinary strong, educated and independent mother and her simply grandious father...ah, one day! #woman #womanshistory #historylover #history #lady #beauchamp #roos #beaufort #medieval #england #english #englishhistory #middleages #plantagenet #warwick #warsoftheroses #hundredyearswar #somerset #duchess #berkeley

I am stitching each fleur de lys with 1 strand (separated from 3) of Au Ver À Soie, Soie Perlee silk thread, which is absolutely my favorite floss because of its incredible shine and liquid beauty. It is also one of the most challenging for me, because it is so, so slippery. It slips out of the needle eye constantly, and the spiral curl that it retains from being separated from a coiled 3-ply filament silk means that it tangles easily. Nonetheless, it is absolutely stunning and reflects light with the most gorgeous glow. I can’t resist it. The rest of the skirt is stitched with Soie d’Alger silk, which has a beautiful soft sheen. The background of this piece is stitched with DMC cotton floss which has a nice matte finish to provide contrast to the luminous figure of warrior Jeanne d’Arc. ⚜️ #auverasoie #soieperlee #soiedalger ⚜️#joanofarc #jeannedarc #orleansfrance #medieval #orleans #hundredyearswar #saintjoan #saintjoanofarc ⚜️ #wip #embroidery #embroidered #handembroidered #surfaceembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #modernembroidery #broderie #brodado #embroideryart #fiberart #embroiderylove #embroideryinstaguild #stitchersofinstagram #embroidelicious #makersgonnamake
Speaking to Charles Valois, or Dauphin. He gonna give me an army to lead France to victory, cuz I'm a #badbitch . #Hundredyearswar But I gotta cut my hair and dress like a man, ughh.
Edward of Langley/Norwich, 2nd Duke of York, KG, (c. 1373 – 25 October 1415) was an English nobleman and magnate, the eldest son of Edmund of Langley, 1st Duke of York from his match with scandalous Isabel of Castile/see my post about her affair with John Holland. He thus was a grandson of King Edward III of England. He held significant appointments during the reigns of Richard II, Henry IV, and Henry V, and is also known for his translation of the hunting treatise The Master of Game. He was slain at the Battle of Agincourt, one of the principal military engagements of the Hundred Years' War against France, in 1415. He married twice but left no issue. So when he was slain at Agincourt, his title was transferred to his nephew Richard (1411-1460), son of Edward's younger brother Richard of Conisburgh. This is how famous Richard of York from the period of the Wars of the Roses came to his ducal title. Through this uncle of his. #historylover #history #medieval #middleages #english #england #france #duke #york #plantagenet #hundredyearswar #agincourt

⚜️Joan of Arc is seen here, with a serene, exalted face of a devout saint, adorned with a thin, golden halo, her eyes raised to the Heavens, at the coronation of Charles VII of France in Reims Cathedral. ⚜️She is victorious. ⚜️To her right, are three pages, the monk Jean Paquerel, and a servant. ⚜️The servant is a self-portrait of the artist, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. ⚜️ Yet her visage in this painting sits atop a thick, muscular neck jutting out of a bulk of steel armour and medieval weaponry, providing an ideal synthesis of the religious with the secular.⚜️ The scene is marked by ambient light, sumptuous objects and rich colours. ⚜️ A message (seen partially) is inscribed at the bottom of the painting: Et son bûcher se change en trône dans les cieux (And her stake was changed into a throne in Heaven).⚜️⚜️⚜️ “Joan of Arc at the Coronation of Charles VII” (Jeanne d’Arc au sacre du roi Charles VII) 1854 by French painter Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) Louvre Museum ⚜️⚜️⚜️ #frenchneoclassicalpainter #troubadorstyle #jeanaugustedominiqueingres #ingres #frenchpainter #frenchartists #joanofarc #figurativeart #warrior #messengerofgod #romancatholicsaint #heroine #hundredyearswar #historicalpainter #masterpainter #artoftheday #arthistory #artoflooking #artobserved #artblogging #arttours ⚜️⚜️⚜️
King Richard " The Lionheart ". " Nel re dal cuore di leone il brillante ma inutile carattere di un cavaliere da romanza era in parte attuato e vissuto; la gloria personale, che egli acquistava con le sue gesta guerresche, era assai più cara alla sua fervida immaginazione di quella che una saggia politica avrebbe potuto dare al suo governo. Di conseguenza, il suo regno fu come il passaggio d' una brillante e veloce meteora che guizza lungo la volta celeste spandendo intorno a sé una luce inutile ma meravigliosa, che è subito inghiottita dall' infinita oscurità; le sue gesta ispirarono temi a bardi e menestrelli, ma non portarono al suo Paese alcuno di quei solidi benefici su cui la storia ama soffermarsi presentandoli come esempi alla prosperità.

Ribery, Kane and Alli are leading the Kingdom of England on the Imaginary European Championship 1350 Throughout the developed Middle Ages (and later) England remained at war. At the same time, when they were not at war against France, the English warred against the Scots, the Irish, and the Welsh. When, in fact, they were not at war against those countries, the English were at war among themselves in a series of wars for the crown.
