Henry V – year of glory – 1415

Henry V was born in the tower above the gatehouse of Monmouth Castle (and for that reason was sometimes called Henry of Monmouth).

He was King of England from 1413 until his death at the age of 35 in 1422. His military successes culminated in his famous victory at the Battle of Agincourt (1415) and saw him come close to conquering France.

Jason McCrossan spoke with the historian, author and biographer Ian Mortimer who wrote a book called 1415 Henry V’s Year of Glory.
