1415 : Henry V’s year of glory

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 considered the nice English hero. Lionised in his personal lifetime for his victory at Agincourt, his piety and his rigorous software of justice, he used to be increased by means of Shakespeare right into a champion of English nationalism. yet does he fairly need to be considered 'the maximum guy who ever governed England'?

In Ian Mortimer's groundbreaking publication, he portrays Henry within the pivotal yr of his reign; recording the dramatic occasion of 1415, he bargains the fullest, such a lot detailed and least romanticised view we have now of Henry and of what he did. the result's not just a desirable reappraisal of Henry; it brings to the fore many unpalatable truths which biographies and army historians have mostly overlooked. on the centre of the booklet is the crusade which culminated within the conflict of Agincourt: a slaughter flooring designed to not improve England's curiosity at once yet to illustrate God's approval of Henry's royal authority on either side of the channel.

1415 used to be a yr of spiritual persecution, own discomfort and one horrendous conflict. this can be the tale of that 12 months, as visible over the shoulder of its such a lot cold-hearted, so much bold and such a lot celebrated hero.

Sample text

He was a protdg6 of Waleran de Meulan, and his successor was Henry 11 de B e a ~ m o n t . 8483. I t is interesting that Rtchard de Reviers isdepicted by Wace as fulfilting the same sort of role for the young Henry 1 as William the Marshal did for the Your18 King. 9397-422. Richard was a loyal supporter of Henry I, as was his son Baldwin de Rcdvers of the En~pressMatilda and Henry If. 1188). See I. J. Sanders, English Baronies, Oxford 1960,42. 137. 46 R. tl. C. Dam, King Stephen. 2nd edn, London 1977,18.

King Stephen was count of Boulogne in right of his wife, until hegave the honour t o his elder son Eustace (in 1146-7). When Eustace died in 1153, his younger brother Willianl succeeded. After his death on the Aquitanian expedition of 1159. his sister Mary became countess. In the same year she married Matthew, the younger son of Thierry, count of Flanders. During ~~ the period in which Wace wrote, then, the county of Boulogne was in the hands of what Henry 11 regarded as the usurper's dynasty, and frequently hostile.

The 'Chronique Ascendante' rnay provide the clue. 82 It is dearly written as an advertisement for the poem and Part I1 follows on neatly from it. I think it was written (or re-written as Holden suggests) to include the reference to the recent rebellion of the Young King. The section describing this talks of the treachery of the French, the unnatural act of a son rebelling against his father, and of the generosity with which Henry dealt with the rebels.
