John Wycliffe (1330-1384) and the Dawn of the Reformation.
During the reign of Edward III., a silent alteration had been wrought in the condition of the lower classes. Feudalism was beginnings its slow decline, the divisions in the state made by contending parties, the divisions in the church made by contending popes, and a general upheaving of society, followed or preceded those political agitations, which, though they appeared to be confined to the barons and chiefs of houses, yet involved the common people, and still more the burgesses, who had already attained to some political power in parliament.

Roger Mortimer, 1. Earl of March, 1287-1330.
The name of this man is inscribed on one of the darkest pages of English history, and though it is associated with the great house of Lancaster, which afterwards long maintained its power over the English throne, it can only be regarded as equalling in infamy that of the wicked and ignoble king whose neglected queen chose the great noble for her paramour.

Arnold Winkelried in the Medieval Battle scene at Sempach Switzerland at July 9, 1386.
Arnold Winkelried or Arnold from Winkelried († allegedly July 9, 1386 in Sempach) is a mythical figure, which plays a role in the history of Switzerland. The Battle of Sempach (Canton Lucerne) took place July 9 1386. It applies in the history of Switzerland as the culmination of the conflict between the Habsburgs and the Swiss during the Swiss Habsburg wars and was an important event for the independence of the Confederation. The battle is considered as exemplary of the medieval order of battle of the Pike square. It is also the birth of the legend of the hero Arnold von Winkelried, which is sung in the Battle of Sempach song. Then he should have thrown themselves into the spears of the enemy to make a breach for the federal attack.
Here is a monogrome variation of the battle scene which still appears more expressive than the above-colored illustration.
