Medieval Europe: Politics
Major political events of the European Middle Ages (c. 400-1500), including reigns (with a bias towards France and England), wars, dynasties, and major or not-so-major (mostly) secular events. Information drawn mostly from Bennett's 'Medieval Europe: A Short History'. (Note that this timeline is best used in conjunction with the Medieval
Europe Religion and Culture timelines, as the distinctions between these
three spheres are in many cases more or less arbitrary. Furthermore, these timelines are mostly intended for those who have
some sense of the period already, but want a little refresher;
commentaries may be more or less helpful). Some dates may be approximate.
