Breton-Norman War
This war between Brittany and Normandy was sparked after William the Conqueror, as Duke of Normandy, supported Rivallon I of Dol's rebellion against the hereditary Duke of Brittany, Conan II. Conan was defeated at the Battle of Dinan, and his surrender is recorded in the Bayeux Tapestry
Hundred Year's War
The series of wars between England and France, 1337–1453, in which England lost all its possessions in France except Calais
The Saintonge War
Feudal dynastic encounter that occurred in 1242 between forces of Louis IX of France and those of Henry III of England. Saintonge is the region around Saintes in the west of France. The conflict was fought because some vassals of Louis were displeased with the land that Louis had given to his brother, Alphonso, comte de Toulouse. The French decisively defeated the English at the Battle of Taillebourg and concluded the struggle at the Siege of Saintes, but because of dynastic sensibilities and the desire to go on a crusade, Louis did not annex Guyenne.
The War of Metz
(Or Four Lords' War) Feudal conflict which devastated the region around Metz between 1324 and 1326.
The War of Saint-Sardos
Short war fought between England and France in 1324. The war was a clear defeat for the English, and led indirectly to the overthrowing of Edward II of England. The war can also be seen as one of the precursors of the Hundred Years' War.
