By the end of this course, you should be able to:
• Identify Edward, the Black Prince, and his place in the wider history of England
• Describe Edward’s official role and military achievements
• Discuss what is known of the prince’s character and private life
• Debate his legacy and the ways in which Edward has been portrayed by subsequent generations
