Edward III (13 November 1312–21 June 1377) was King of England. He ruled for 50 years. He made England the strongest military power in Europe. Edward was crowned when he was fourteen years old, after his father was forced to abdicate. After his victory against the Scots, he declared himself heir to the French throne in 1337, and this was the start of the Hundred Years’ War.
