comment Was either side legally in the right in the Hundred Years War?
I edited the title to raise the notion of "legality." Once that is defined, it is possible to go on to answer the question.

comment Is there a reason for a Queen's husband not to be referred to as King?
"Parliament... wanted the throne to be the sole possession of Mary, with William serving as Prince Consort, but Mary refused due to her self-imposed subservience to her husband." britannia.com/history/monarchs/mon51.html

comment Has any generation generally agreed that the next generation was better?

More to the point, the "Rendezvous" and Lost put their money where their mouth was through pro- "GI" legislation. As for the close votes, this question can be answered objectively through "expert" sources.
