Ancestors clash at Crécy

Battle of Crecy Having just finished a good historical novel about the Battle of Crécy: Harlequin by Bernard Cornwell, it seemed interesting to trace my descent from the opposing kings and also the commander of the English right and left wings. For simplicity I have chosen only one of the several lines of descent from each person.

First, the English commanders:

The Earl of Warwick King Edward III William De Bohun
