Edward III of England was a warriorking who is remembered in history for his dramatic victory against the French at Crecy (1346) and his sword, far from being a purely ceremonial piece, was made to be wielded in battle.

If you place an order for one of our replica weapons (swords, maces, axes, etc.), you agree that you are at least 18 years old and have read our Sword Care and Safety section and you will be responsible for your weapon's use or misuse.

 Henry III to Edward III (History of England) - History for Kids!
Henry III was only nine years old when he became king, and so he pretty much had to do whatever the barons (the aristocrats) told him to.
When Henry III died in 1272 AD, he was succeeded by his son Edward I. Edward was a stronger king than his father, but he saw the wisdom of getting along with the aristocrats and so he also held Parliament regularly.
After Edward I came his son Edward II, who was so weak that he was kicked out of power and then killed, and then in 1312 Edward III, who took the throne at fifteen when his father was removed.
