Random information on the term “Pale”:
The Pale of Calais (French: Calaisis) was a region in what is now France, which was controlled by the monarchs of England following the Battle of Crécy in 1346 and the subsequent siege. Pale is an archaic English term for “area, jurisdiction”. Its capture by the English is the subject of Auguste Rodin’s 1889 sculpture The Burghers of Calais. In 1558, the expanding Kingdom of France annexed the Pale of Calais in the aftermath of the Siege of Calais.
The region was represented in the Parliament of England by members sitting for the Calais constituency.
Calais fell after the Battle of Crécy in 1346 to Edward III of England following a siege. Its seizure gave him a defensible outpost where his army could regroup, and the city’s position on the English Channel meant that, once it was taken, it could be resupplied easily by sea. Its retention was confirmed under the Treaty of Brétigny, signed on 8 May 1360, when Edward renounced the throne of France, in return for substantial lands in France, namely Aquitaine and the area around Calais. By 1453, at the end of the Hundred Years’ War, it was the only part of mainland France to remain in English hands. It was used as a base for English expeditions operating against France such as in 1492 when Henry VII oversaw an attempt to capture Boulogne.
