Henry V (1386-1422) (6/6)

List item

Immortalised by the ingenious writings of William Shakespeare, Henry V is known for the one-time achievement of uniting the English, who during his reign were scattered throughout Britain and territories in France. His victory at the Battle of Agincourt all but annihilated France, forcing the French king to name him his heir. However, tragedy struck, and before the French king could die, Henry was taken by illness. Despite this, his legacy is that of a hero and a fierce warrior-king, the last of his kind, and historians to this day praise his reign.
