comment What caused the turning point in Hundred Years' War?
England reached the height of its power in France under the regency of Bedford. Burgundy completely changed sides by 1435, the year when Bedford died and when Henry VI was just 14. England may have had a few reverses but remained in a very strong position when Burgundy started moving. Gloucester was certainly a troublemaker back home, but his meddling was inconsequential to the war effort. If England were visibly in terminal decline, Burgundy would never have been able to extract the concessions from France that it did in the Treaty of Arras.

I'd like to see some evidence of policies to force marriage of Aborigines with whites. There were certainly policies in place to prevent them from marrying certain people that the department deemed inappropriate, but that's a different thing.
