How did the Hundred-year war affect France & England over the years? The hundred-year war fought between France and England was a fight to the throne on France. It was fought between the years 1337-1453 during which there were many battles between the countries.

Though earlier French kings had tried to strengthen their power, Absolute Monarchy was finally established during the reign of Louis XIII (1610-1643) and consolidated during that of Louis XIV (1643- 1715) in the 17th century.
