Edward the Black Prince, Done? by Oznerol-1516 Edward the Black Prince, Done? by Oznerol-1516
Edward Plantagenet, Prince of Wales, son of Edward III, and heir to english crown. He was a trully succesful military commander and won heroic victories against the french, at Crécy (Along his father, the king) and Poiteirs, where he achieved to capture the french king himself, Jean II of Valois. Edward was nicknamed "Black Prince", the origin of it is still unclear, but it may refer to his brutallity against french or the colouring of his armor. Done after his tomb's effigy. In the background his royal coat of arms and the one he used in times of peace.

I've always imagined Capetians and their English descendants - Edward III was said to resemble Philippe le Bel greatly - as blond. Nice artwork though.

Forgive me for this is a truly old artwork, so not the greatest accuracy. BUT, Philippa of Hainault, Prince Edward's mother, was said to be dark skinned and dark haired, so it could be possible that Edward the Black Prince didn't resemble his great-grandfather, Philip IV, but his mother. And thanks.

God, this looks ancient... And terrible.

True indeed. BTW, have you read The Accursed Kings? It is an excellent seris on the end of Capetian reign. 
For example, Phillipe III the Bold was the Black Prince's great-great-grandfather on both sides.

Yes, I'm reading the second book right now. Such a coincidence.

Indeed. The ties between both the Plantagenet and the Capets ran deep this time. The alliance with Hainault was instrumental, and provided Edward with more French Royal blood to add to his own!

I finished reading the last one last month.
I guess we all know where GRRM took his Targaryen inspiration.

Robert d'Artois is like a smart, cunning, less merciless and brutal, Mountain. But the adjectives are similar; colossal, trembling floor, imposing... Indeed there's quite a good deal of the Rois Maudits in ASoIaF!

GRRM cited it as "the real Game of Thrones" xD
Philippe le Bel reminds me of both Tywin Lannister and Ned stark, though. And his three sons of the Baratheon brothers, with the messy Louis le Hutin being Robert, the calm Phillipe le Long being Stannis and the handsome Charles de la Marche being Renly.
