Henry V decides to go to war in France to conquer the crown of the kingdom. On the eve of the decisive attack on Agincourt, the King disguises himself to walk around his camp among his soldiers and boost their morale. After winning this battle, Henri V woos Catherine of Valois, their union being able to ensure the alliance of the kingdoms of France and England.
