This event has passed

The third part of the Henriad begins with Henry, without his old and dissolute comrades, trying to find a way to prove his worth as king.  Taunted by the French prince, he wages war against France to consolidate his kingdom.  He is forced to face the horror of war and must rally his troops to battle a French army which is five times greater than his.  Henry triumphs over the French and woos the French princess for his wife.
