    Edward, the Black Prince The eldest son of King Edward III of England, Prince Edward of Woodstock is one of the great ‘what if’ figures of medieval history.

    Edward’s introduction to the reality of knighthood was a dramatic one. At the age of 16 he was in the vanguard of the English army at the Battle of Crécy, where he took part in desperate fighting and became a hero to his fellow countrymen. Ten years later, he led the English at Poitiers, and so was involved in two of the three greatest English victories of the Hundred Years’ War.

    Given control of English lands in France, Edward became a statesman as well as a paragon of chivalry, and looked set to become one of England’s greatest kings. But he caught dysentery and died a year before his father, in 1476, a great life cut short.
