King Henry V (1386 – 1422), the second English monarch of the House of Lancaster. Henry embarked on war with France and his military successes culminated in his famous victory at the Battle of Agincourt (1415) and saw him come close to conquering France. Taking advantage of political divisions within France, he conquered large portions of the kingdom, and Normandy became English for the first time in 200 years. In the Treaty of Troyes Charles VI of France recognised Henry V as heir apparent to the French throne. Henry subsequently married to Charles's daughter, Catherine of Valois.

Henry embarked on war with France in 1415 and his military successes culminated in his famous victory at the Battle of Agincourt (1415) and saw him come close to conquering France. Taking advantage of political divisions within France, he conquered large portions of the kingdom, and Normandy became English for the first time in 200 years. After months of negotiation with Charles VI of France, the Treaty of Troyes (1420) recognised Henry V as regent and heir apparent to the French throne, and he was subsequently married to Charles's daughter, Catherine of Valois (1401–1437).
