The famous battle of Agincourt took place on Friday 25 October 1415 (Saint Crispin’s Day). Henry V’s victory against a numerically superior French army, crippled the Valois monarchy and initiated a new phase in the Hundred Years War during which the English conquered Normandy and forced King Charles VI to accept a treaty naming Henry V as the heir to the French throne.
The national Agincourt 600 Committee is organising and funding a number of events across the country to commemorate the battle, and has generously agreed to fund this public symposium.
