Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

HENRY THE FIFTH
By William Shakespeare

Painting of Henry V at Agincourt by Sir John Gilbert

The play Henry V by William Shakespeare is a good portrayal of the Battle of Agincourt which was a great victory for the English and a disaster for the French. The Battle of Agincourt, fought on October 25, 1415, drastically turned the tide of the Hundred Years War in favor of England to the point that only a miracle could save France. To completely understand the "miracle" that Joan of Arc provided and the dramatic impact that she had upon the Hundred Years War it is necessary to first understand how devastating a defeat Agincourt was to the French. William Shakespeare's play Henry V is a good choice for learning more about this famous battle and the part it played in the Hundred Years War. It is one of Shakespeare's best plays and is both educating and entertaining.
