    • The death of Charles IV without a direct heir set off a succession crisis that triggered the Hundred Years War. Charles's sister, Isabella, sought the French Throne in opposition to the claim of the cadet Valois branch. (Charles of Valois was the grandnephew of King Philippe IV.) As an alternative to Isabella, her son King Edward III was pushed forward but this received little French support. Valois took the crown and Edward took to the battlefield. [2]
