1423 - July 31 – Battle of Cravant: The French army is defeated at Cravant, on the banks of the River Yonne near Auxerre, by the English and their Burgundian allies.

1424 - August 17 – Battle of Verneuil: An English force under John, Duke of Bedford defeats a larger French army under the Duke of Alençon, John Stewart, and Earl Archibald of Douglas. Alençon is captured and Douglas killed.

1425 - Beijing, capital of China, becomes the largest city in the world, taking the lead from Nanjing (estimated date)

By this year, paper currency in China is worth only 0.025% to 0.014% of its original value in the 14th century; this, and the counterfeiting of copper coin currency, will lead to a dramatic shift to using silver as the common medium of exchange in China.

1426 AD At the Battle of St. James an English army under John, Duke of Bedford, defeats the French under Arthur de Richemont, forcing the Duke of Brittany to recognize English suzerainty.

1427 AD Radu II of Wallachia resumes the throne for the fourth time, but a seven-year struggle for it ends when he is defeated in battle, and probably killed, by Dan II, who resumes the throne for the fifth time (we talk about real political stability here!)

1428 AD English forces under Thomas Montacute, 4th Earl of Salisbury, besiege Orléans. Jean de Dunois, the Bastard of Orléans, commands the defenders. A few days later, Thomas Montacute is mortally wounded in an unsuccessful assault on Orléans. He is succeeded in command by William de la Pole, 4th Earl of Suffolk.

1429 AD Jean D' Arc commanding the French army lifts the siege of Orleans and turns the tide of the war. She then proceeds to see Charles the VII crowned. She defeats the English forces again and they are pressed to withdraw from many areas of France.

1430 AD Jean D' aArc is captured by soldiers of Philip the Good of Burgundy who ransoms her to the English.

1431 AD On May 30 Jean D' Arc is burned at the stake. Some years later her trial was nullified and she became a patron saint of France. To his shame, Charles the VII made no effort to save her who saved his country and his crown.

1453 AD On May 29th the City of cities, Constantinople falls to the Ottoman hordes who killed, raped and pillaged for three days.
On the other side of Europe the Hundred Years' War ended without a treaty, and England loses everything in France except Calais, which will keep for another century.
Because of these two major historical events, 1453 is considered the end of the Middle Ages.

1460

The 1460 is the original Dr. Martens boot.

Its boot's recognizable DNA looks like this: 8 eyes, classic Dr. Martens Smooth leather, grooved sides, a heel-loop, yellow stitching, and a comfortable, air-cushioned sole. Built to last, this unisex boot is made using one of the finest methods of construction: the Goodyear Welt — which means the upper and sole are sewn together in our heat-sealed z-welt stitch. The boot sits on our iconic AirWair™ sole, which is oil and fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance, and is made with Smooth, a lightly textured, highly durable leather with a soft sheen. Use our Wonder Balsam to keep your boots clean, protect the leather, and keep it soft and supple.
