Correct Answer : (2) The Hundred Years War was fought between Kingdoms of England and France.

Explanation :

The Hundred Years War was a series of conflicts waged from 1337 to 1453 between the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of France and their various allies for control of the French throne.

It was the result of a dynastic disagreement dating back to William the Conqueror who became King of England in 1066, while remaining Duke of Normandy.

It lasted for 116 years, through the reigns of five English kings (Edward III to Henry V) and five French kings (Philip VI to Charles VII).

The French eventually won and gained control of all of France except Calais. This war gave impetus to ideas of both French and English nationalism.
