Phillip VI | The Art of Mark Evans

Philip VI (1293-1350), The Fortunate

In Lenticular Flip Art, The Valois Dynasty by Mark Evans

Not so fortunate. The 100 Years War began with Philip VI. The most devastating defeat happened in the Battle of Crécy. Before the battle was joined a storm ravaged the battlefield followed by a huge swirling flock of panicked crows. Not a good omen. Philip died during the first wave of Bubonic Plague to hit Europe.
