The late medieval period in Western Europe witnessed legendary battles such as Sluys, Crecy, Poitiers, Najera, Agincourt, and the siege of Orleans, which have become ingrained in our collective consciousness through myths and legends. However, these large-scale battles were infrequent due to the immense risks they posed. Defending armies often chose to remain within the safety of castle walls, compelling the enemy to endure lengthy sieges or suffer constant harassment from small raiding parties. This defensive strategy led attacking armies during the Hundred Years’ War to adopt a devastating tactic known as the chevauchée, or “mounted raid.” These mobile forces engaged in widespread pillaging, destruction, and violence to undermine the enemy’s economy and punish subjects loyal to rival kings. The chaotic nature of this period extended to maritime routes, where acts of piracy were seen as extensions of regular trade, blurring the lines between pirates, merchants, and privateers. Consequently, countless minor clashes occurred, ranging from formal challenges to daring assaults on seemingly impenetrable fortifications, as well as valiant stands by local forces desperate to defend their properties. These lesser-known battlefields are the focus of Blood & Crowns, a depiction of the intense personal combat experienced by individual warriors, where blood was shed and crowns were both won and lost.
