"Banner of Gilbert, Baron Talbot"

The Battle of Agincourt was one of the most startling and brilliant victories in the warlike history of England. Against all expectations the proud chivalry of France were routed with great slaughter, some 5,000 Frenchmen of noble birth losing their lives on the muddy battlefield under a storm of English arrows. "This was a royal fellowship of death," Shakespeare has Henry remark as the King is read the tally of the slain enemy. Though English casualties were comparatively trivial, among them was Edward Plantagenet, Duke of York and grandson of King Edward III.

The battle resulted in the decisive victory of the English over the French in the Hundred Years’ War. In pursuit of his claim to the French throne, Henry V invaded Normandy with an army of 11,000 men in August 1415. The English took Harfleur in September, but with their forces cut in half by battle and disease, they resolved to return to England. At Agincourt they were cornered by a French army of 20,000–30,000 men, including many mounted knights in heavy armour. On a cramped battlefield where the superior French numbers offered little advantage, Henry made skilful use of his lightly equipped, mobile archers. The French were disastrously defeated, losing over 6,000 men, while the English lost fewer than 450.
