Medieval Soldier Database

Did your ancestors fight at Agincourt? War records of 250,000 medieval soldiers who fought in the Hundred Years War between 1369 and 1453 have gone online at the Medieval Soldier Database.

It includes the names of archers who served with Henry V at Agincourt, meaning you could see if any of your relatives helped rout the French in the famous 1415 battle. The Medieval Soldier Database contains full profiles of individual soldiers, with muster roll evidence allowing researchers to piece together details of soldiers’ lives.

I wonder how many people can trace their family tree back that far? I'm stuck at about 1800 for all of my lines.

Darn. I was hoping for a match, but it wasn't to be.
