a good teaser, but a few people do not consider the 100 years war an official war. some consider it a series of skurmishes that never really had any solution

regardless of what it was, it is still refered to as the hundred year war. Well done Dewtell

Thanks for your comments. The reason I thought this would make a good teaser is that it involves an odd or surprising fact about a (somewhat) familiar event. I find it ironic that the Hundred Year's War was not in fact a hundred years long (except in a very crude approximation).

I've always found it funny that the Hundred Year War was not actually 100 years long...
