        He was quite autistic, and 5'8

          5’8 seems like a reasonable height for a person in the Middle Ages. Weren’t people a lot shorter just 100 years ago?

            Yeah he was normal height for a man then. No problem there. Never heard the charge that he was autistic though, nor do I believe it. Henry II had a famously short temper (as did both of his sons who succeeded him) but overall he was a very successful and well-respected king, especially in regards to administration.

    Afterwards there are no more chad kings, they all just get cucked by Parliament. William III was close though.

        >Conquers half of France
        In the second treaty of London the French agreed to give Edward all the territories that were formally a part of the angevin empre. Though it didn't last for long as for some reason the french people there didn't want to be ruled by an English king who had been going around burning down there houses and stealing their property. Ulimately the reduced treaty of Brétigny would be accepted, which lasted a bit longer, though not by much.
        >expelling Frenchmen from a buch of cities and replacing them with englishmen
        Most notably Calais, but a couple of other places as well. Following the seige the inhabitants were expelled and the king invited in English settlers to move into their property

      Do you have any reading suggestions on him? I'm open

        Edward III by Mark Ormand, a good biography on the man covering his whole life
        The Perfect King by Ian Mortimer, he has a weird idea that Edward II actually survived and moved to italy which every other historian alive disagrees with and which should be ignored. But outside those parts it's another good biography
        The first two volumes of Sumptons 100 years war. These hefty books cover the whole war and it's prelude in minute detail so naturally have a lot of stuff on him even if he's not the focus.
        Edward III and the triumph of England by Richard Barber. Focused on the Crecy campaign with a detailed recounting of that battle, but does cover his early life and relationships as well. Also a lot of stuff about the order of the Garter and other knightly orders if you find that sort of thing interesting.

        It is indeed cool but in actuality it is actually not super impressive. The Royal College of Arms itself maintains that Edward I is most likely the last/latest common mutual ancestor of virtually all people with ethnic English roots. So while it’s impressive for those of us with English blood to assume he’s an ancestor, which is rather fascinating, one can believe within reason that almost all of us share this. And if almost all of us share this, it’s not terribly special, is it?

        By the generation of our 10-times great grandparents, who usually were born in the late 15/early 1600s (at least on my family tree) we have 4096 of them. Well, at least in theory we do, because anyone whose inbred doesn’t have that many, but still, on paper we all do. But already going to the generation of our 14-times great grandparents we have 65,536 of them, and that’s of people born probably for the most part in the mid to late 1400s. Multiply that a few times over with each new generation added on, and suddenly already by our 18-times great grandparents and there’s over a million of them! On paper 1,048,576 ancestors to that generation. Pretty wild. And the population of England in 1200 was like 2.5 million people. That, and the children of the nobility had a higher likelihood of survival, as did their children, who eventually with each passing generation lost status if they were not in line for the throne. Think about the hundreds of nameless, faceless cousins the late Queen Elizabeth II must have had — even the known ones like Prince Michael, he’s like 50th in line for the throne. His great grandchildren will be borderline nobodies; maybe if they’re lucky they’ll have some above average multi-generational wealth and maybe some fancy title.

          iirc Queen Lizzie II was 23 generations removed from William 'Chad' the Conqueror, making him her 21-times great grandfather (probably a great many times over)

          I’ve also seen it said that Edward III is likely a common ancestor of all British/English people.

            The best authorities aren’t actually sure if it’s Edward I or Edward III, but they are confident that it’s one of them. Both of them had humungous progenies, with of course Edward III being a part of his grandfather’s. They each had lots of kids who had lots of kids who had lots of kids and so on, remarkably so. And think even about how many illegitimates went undocumented and lost in the weeds but who still passed on their genes.

            So even if it was Edward III, it is still thanks to Edward I. And as a significantly English-backgrounded fellow, I am proud nonetheless because both of these fellows were absolute chads.
