Synopsis: Henry V has traditionally figured as a national hero, whose victory at Agincourt made him the epitome of medieval chivalry. This volume by leading scholars on the period seeks to assess him in a wider perspective as a ruler, and presents a reappraisal of his government. Following the crisis of royal authority caused by Richard II's tyranny and his father's usurpation of the throne, Henry V set himself to restore "good governance" by controlling the nobility, restoring law and order, defeating the challenge of Lollardy, reforming royal finances, and winning the co-operation of parliament and the royal administration. Each of these aspects is explored in this book, and in addition his military leadership and his diplomacy are reassessed in this wider context.
