If England won the Hundred Years war and unified the realms of England and France, how long could this have lasted? Long term it was only a matter of time before France rebelled and broke away but if England ruled France for hundreds of years is it possible the north would have become more English in character? What about autonomous regions like Brittany and Burgundy? Would England spend resources trying to take territory from the Holy Roman Empire like France did or would they focus on other endeavors? I read that one of the English Kings wanted to conquer France so he could focus on crusading against the turks (earlier 1400's), which would be a prime time as the ottomans were recovering from Tamerlane's raids.
