An epic account of King Henry V and the mythical conflict of Agincourt, from the writer of the bestselling Time Traveller's consultant to Medieval England.
Henry V is thought of as the nice English hero. Lionised in his personal lifetime for his victory at Agincourt, his piety and his rigorous program of justice, he used to be increased through Shakespeare right into a champion of English nationalism. yet does he relatively should be considered 'the maximum guy who ever governed England'?
