Look on the bright side: now you have a whole year to prepare for the next one.

Heraldry wise that's the English after Edward III declared himself rightful King of France, so this is post 1370. By the armor and heraldry I'd say Richard III.
>>
>>51165
Finally someone that knows something, ok so who is with him?
>>
>>50975
Oh yeah, Rufus was his name. He and that fucking uphill tutorial.

>>50975
I like Dread better. Bum-rushing 4 units of levy spearmen and routing armies with a 3-2 advantage is always hilarious.

Good job, yes, it's Sir Humphrey Stafford of Grafton who fought with Richard at Bosworth and afterward attempted the Lovell Rebellion against the ursuper Henry VII.

Granted I would have taken any Henry Stafford since I didn't include the white field and black ermine or Humprhey's brother, Thomas.

>>51536
Start having kids anon.
>>
>>52036
Man, your kids must have been so happy to play such boring characters that nobody gives a shit about
Why didn't you just let them be some cool knight they actually knew something about?

Are those American kids appropriating the culture of English knights who added lily flowers on their flag in attempt to appropriate French culture?
>>
>>52273
Actually anon, I think the main issue is the father dressing his kids up as traitorous shits. York knows only fail, House Lancaster are the true heirs to the Plantagenet crown.
>>
>>52351
Lancashire please go.
>>
>>50734
He's actually right
This heraldy was effective only under the Plantagenet, who were a French dynasty

The lions were from the Normans (the previous dynasty) and the lilies were added to remind everyone that the family ruling England was French (which gave them a legitimate claim on the French throne)

So yeah, the "three lions + lilies" coat of arm is literally a mix of Norman and French symbols (which defined England very well since it had been keked by both not long before)
>>
>>52393
Remind me what happened to Richard III?
>>
>>52496
>Implying any dynasty in England's history has not been Norman after 1066.
>>
>>52653
He won the battle and Yorkshire lived happily ever after.

>>52695
Would you count the Cromwell Dictatorship as a dynasty?
>>
>>52273

Implying that Richard III wasn't the last great King of England and my ancestor isn't worth honoring

>>
>>52723
Not really considering Charles II was chilling in France at the time. A King in exile is still a King. Plus Cromwell is a shit.

>>52783
Richard III may not have been a hunchback weirdo or killed the two boys, but he was still a pretty crappy King.

I'm pretty new to making armour, but I've got some links here. The archive and these channels helped me a ton. I'm just making helmets for now, got a sallet and a great helm done so far. It's really rewarding.

>crappy King
Victors right the history, anyway it's not like he had a long time to rule to prove his metal. Atleast he died an honorable death.
>>
>>52695
Plantagenets were a French family from Anjou
Tudors were Welsh
Stewarts were Scots
Hanover and Windsor were Germans

All Europe has ruled England but the English
>>
>>53009
Oliver and Richard Cromwell were English.
>>

My dad was crap himself anon, be the father you wish you had.

Yeah and look how that turned out with Cromwell allowing the Finns back in.

Norman

The only thing Normans do better than conquering is fucking.
>>
>>53178
In that conversation there was no argument that the rulers had to be a dynasty. Just that they had to have ruled England.

>>53205
Hanoverians and Windsors were/are Saxons not Normans.
>>
>>53176
I don't have pictures of my work, (phone's camera is junk and I don't have a proper camera) but I made the great helm off of Parker's videos and I used a Sallet plan from ArmourArchive.
>>
>>49235
OP are you sending your kids to Turkey to retake the city of Constantinople and push back the kebab forces back into the sandy shit hole they came from?
I wish your kids the best of luck, may they squash many mudslimes.
>>
>>52036
>usurper Henry VII
Go back to France you Norman fuck. Henry VII was Y Mab Darogan, the saviour of the Britons, a true Celt and Arthur reborn. Tudor is the true ruling dynasty of Britain and you are a Saxon and a traitor.
>>
>>53313
Henry VII son killed the English church and led to the brittian people being taken over by Kebab.

Sometimes it's better to aknowledge your betters and let them save you from yourselves.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Descent_of_Elizabeth_II_from_William_the_Conqueror

Nope, they still have Norman blood. Rollo I of Normandy is the primogenitor of all modern royalty in Europe. Like I said, Normans fucked. A lot.
>>
>>53394
On the subject of churches. The Orthodox church considers the last Orthodox King of England to be King Harold Godwinson.
>>
>>53394
Correction, you are a Saxon, a traitor, and a Catholic.

Henry VIII saved Britain from both the Roman tyrant and the German heretic. He saved the Church in England. Caesaropapism is best theology, you pagan heathen.

Bosworth Field, best day of my life.
>>
>>53419
>Rollo I of Normandy is the primogenitor of all modern royalty in Europe

But that's false
Only English kings have his blood (alongside shitton of French, German and Scottish blood)

Only thing I could think about.
>>
>>53533
Yes, and the English Kings married off their daughters and their sons and bastard children spread across all of Europe from Spain, the Holy Roman Empire, and the Crusader States.
>>
>>53586
Right but by that you could pick almost any noble related to Charlemagne and make the same claim.
>>
>>53681
The point though is that England never had anything other than French rule by blood and culture, although I supposed with Windsor you could argue they were sufficiently German.

Either way though, Saxons got rekt.

Oh im laffin
>>
>>53739
Not really, no.

Culturally they were french, then english, then dutch then german, if you are talking ethnically, because the royal families of europe intermarried so much like you said, calling them "French" is meaningless.

I mean if you want to trace them all back to Rollo, shouldn't you be calling them Norse?

Enjoy your shariah law.
