Henry V of England

On April 9, 1413, Henry V was crowned King of England at Westminster Abbey. Considered one of the great warrior kings in English history, Henry V led two successful invasions of France, culminating in his famous victory at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415. After his sudden death in 1422, he was succeeded by his infant son, who reigned as Henry VI.

Fun fact: Henry V was featured in three plays by his cousin William Shakespeare. The famous playwright is Henry V’s 6th cousin four times removed.
