The tale of how the son of Edward III, John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster laid claim to, and attempted seizure of, the throne of Castile (Spain) by force for himself, his dynasty and country is a fascinating but unknown chapter in English medieval history. Set against the backdrop of the turbulent Hundred Years War conflict in the later fourteenth century, this webinar aims to explore the story with the aid of various diplomatic and administrative records held at The National Archives.
