Background on the Name "Agincourt"
In 1415, Henry V of
England declared war on France to reclaim the province of Burgundy,
which had previously been deeded to England through marriage years
before. Eventually, the expedition took him to the town of
Agincourt (pronounced "ah-jin-cour") in France, where Charles VI
marshaled his vastly superior force of arms against him.
Henry, recognizing that
his small army of a few thousand soldiers was outnumbered and
exhausted, used strategy and technology to achieve an extraordinary
victory. Winston Churchill has described this victory as
Britain's greatest hour of glory.
Henry lined up his small
force on the far side of a very sodden marsh and baited the French
to charge his lines. Filled with the previous evenings premature
celebration of a not-to-be-had French victory, the French arrogantly
charged nearly a mile across the bog, weighted down by an average of
more than 40 pounds of armor, which for men who stood on average
only 5'6" tall, was a great burden. Much of the bog was
underwater and the mud made progress very difficult. Horses
and men exhausted themselves in the effort.
While they were crossing,
Henry had his archers, using long bows that could shoot nearly 100
yards farther than the French bows with stout oak arrows that
pierced the French armor, pummel the French with literally thousands
of arrows. By the time the French got within fighting range, they
had lost several thousand out of their 8-10,000 men and horses.
When the French finally reached the English lines, the English were
comparatively fresh and fell upon the French with a vengeance,
slaughtering hundreds under the sword.
In the end, Henry lost a
few hundred men while the French losses, depending on the account
you believe, were at least 5,000 and as high as 7,500 including more
than 500 "nobles". The French gave up all of Burgundy and Charles
VI gave the hand of his daughter to Henry in marriage. The
irony is that Henry died only a few years later of dysentery while
in France and his son, Henry VI, lost Burgundy again to the French
through a series of inept machinations gone-wrong.
