King Henry V

9 August 1387 – 31 August 1422

This 1413-1422 penny was under $35.00.

Henry is most famous for the battle of Agincourt, and for nearly conquering France during the Hundred Years War.  He married Cathering of Valois and was the heir apparent of the French throne. Unfortunately he died two months before the French king and was not crowned king of France.   He died quite young of health issues contracted during a seige in France, and was succeeded by his son.
