Edward “The Black Prince” Woodstock
Some say that this Prince of Wales’ nickname was earned by his brutal treatment of the French. Others claim that he was known as “The Black Prince” solely because of his choice of armor colors. Whatever you choose to believe, Edward “The Black Prince” of Woodstock was a knight to be feared. His most notable victories include the Crecy Campaign of the Hundred Years’ War in 1346, and the Battle of Poitiers in 1356. The sack of the town of Limoges in 1370 that saw a massacre of circa 3,000 people is said to be the Black Prince’s most vicious and cruel victory.
