The political situation in England is tense: King Henry IV has died, and his son, the young King Henry V, has just assumed the throne. Furthermore, in order to gain the respect of the English people and the court, Henry must live down his wild adolescent past, when he used to consort with thieves and drunkards at the Boar's Head Tavern on the seedy side of London.
Henry lays claim to certain parts of France. When the young prince, or Dauphin, of France sends Henry an insulting message in response to these claims, Henry decides to invade France.
