The Chinese were well aware of gunpowder as a weapon at least a millennia before most Europeans had even heard of it. So when did blackpowder really make such a difference that it shaped European history?

In the year 1453 the aftermath of the French victory at the battle of Castellón left hundreds of England’s medieval terror troops (warbow armed archers) dead and dying from blackpowder wounds. The Anglo-French Hundred Years War was all but over and Medieval England’s noble families would become consumed with infighting that we now call The War Of The Roses; England emerge from this period as the united renaissance realm of the Tudors. blackpowder ruled the battles of Europe for exactly another 410 years until the Prussian invention in 1863 of smokeless powder propellent, just in time for the Franco-Prussian War of 1870!
