  2. 94. HENRY V: 600th ANNIVERSARY
    94. HENRY V: 600th ANNIVERSARY

    2022 marks the 600th anniversary of the death of King Henry V of England. Famed for his victory at the Battle of Agincourt and later immortalised by Shakespeare, Henry is one of England's most famous monarchs. Yet this warrior-king also burned heretics at the stake and looked-on as starving women and children died in ditches outside the city of Rouen. Lauded by chroniclers as a paragon of chivalry, Henry himself was to suffer an inglorious death from dysentery at the age of just 34, never realising his dream of wearing the crowns of both England and France. In this talk, Rory Cox will reveal fresh perspectives about the fascinating life and legacy of King Henry V, whose reign epitomises the achievements and the failures of the medieval Plantagenet dynasty.
