Henry V was King of England for less than a decade, yet he is one of the most famous of the medieval English monarchs. His abilities as a warrior and tactician were proven time and again, though nowhere more decidedly than the Battle of Agincourt. In this battle the English army, badly outnumbered by the French, managed to win a decisive victory thanks to Henry V’s brilliant military strategy. While the English longbow was almost certainly the deciding factor in the battle, Henry V himself led his soldiers in melee combat against French troops while the French monarch – suffering from an illness – avoided the field. Though Henry V himself would die from an illness in his mid 30’s he maintains even to this day a reputation and a legacy as a great warrior, and one of the greatest Kings who ever lived.
