They never conquered Afghanistan wholly, nor France. Definitely tried hard with France over the years and managed to own bits and pieces, but despite some English kings having King of France amongst their titles, it never quite happened.

The wars with France over the throne were finished before the English/Welsh joined with the Scots and became Brits. :cool:

Henry V was crowned King of France in Paris - premature death otherwise who knows?

England only - would have been a different story if the Scots and Irish had helped plus some extra Welsh bowmen.
