      Dear Phil, et al.,

      The claim to the French throne by the English monarchs stems from Edward II's marriage to Isabella (the She-wolf to some) of France, daughter of Philip IV.

      Philip III of France
      _______________I__________________
      I I
      Philip IV Charles of Valois
      _________________________________ I_________
      I I I I I
      Louis Philip Charles Isabella Philip VI
      X V IV = Edward II
      I of England
      I I
      I I
      John (Jean) I Edward III


      The daughters of the sons of Philip IV were passed over, as the throne went (with the exception of Jean I, King in 1316) from brother to brother. With the death of Charles IV in 1328, the direct male Capetian line had daughtered out, and cousin Philip of Valois was chosen as the next King (reigned 1328-1350).

      The contest really got into gear in 1337, with added friction between the
      government of Edward III of England and that of Philip VI in Paris with
      regard to Edward's lands in France. The claim of Edward III is technically based
      on primogeniture, vs. the claim (in Paris) to adhere to 'Salic' law with
      inheritance in the male line only.

      Of course, in Plantagenet Poker, a few hundred cavalry and archers (with
      a few thousand infantry) beats Dieu et Mon Droit. Not just a Highland
      tradition: just ask Guillaume le Conquerant.

      Cheers,

      John P. Ravilious
