"Henry V is a history play by William Shakespeare, based on the life of King Henry V of England, focusing on events immediately before and after the Battle of Agincourt during the Hundred Years' War.

This tetralogy is often referred to as the "Henriad," alluding to the 'epic' nature of the story (and subsequent relation to Homer's epic the "Iliad"). The original audiences would thus have already been familiar with the title character, who was depicted in the Henry IV plays as a wild, undisciplined lad known as "Prince Hal." In Henry V, the young prince has become a mature man and embarks on an attempted conquest of France."
