AQUITAINE - duchy of Aquitaine - PRINCE EDWARD BLACK

Edward the Black Prince (1330-1376) was the eldest son of Edward III Plantagenet and Philippa of Hainault. He made his debut at the Battle of Crécy in 1346 where he was impressed by the chivalrous attitude of John the Blind, King of Bohemia, who preferred to die rather than endure the shame of defeat. It will take to heraldic arms ostrich feathers that were already king of Bohemia. Edward the Black Prince is Aquitaine in 1355 and began a ride in Poitou next year. It crushes the French at Poitiers and captured King John the Good. By the Treaty of Brétigny in May 1360, the independence of Aquitaine is confirmed. Edward is the first prince from 1362. He arrived in Bordeaux in 1363. War resumes with France in 1369. After the first defeats English in Aquitaine, the Black Prince returned to England in 1371 and the following year, waives his principality. He died in 1376. His father Edward III died the following year. It's Richard II, son of the Black Prince, who ascended the throne.
