Under their rule, they united England and a part of continent in the Northern France. In 12th century the possessions of English kings in France were significantly increased due to the marriage connections in Central and Western France. After a long and difficult struggle, the French monarchy managed to regain all these lands in the early 13th century.

The causes were complex and varied, but included English territorial and dynastic ambitions in France.
