   The Plantagenets Brief History

History of Henry IV and V

The House of Lancaster

Henry IV 1399-1413

Bollingbroke became king in uneasy circumstances. Grabbing the throne when the current king died without an heir was one thing. Shoving a legitimate, if unsatisfactory, king off the throne while he was still alive was something else.

Since he was the son of the fourth son of Edward III, Henry had a fairly reasonable claim to the crown. (Edward Mortimer, son of Edward III’s third son, had an even better one. But Edward was only eight years old. In these turbulent times, barons and Parliament alike wanted a strong, and grown-up, ruler.)

All the same, Henry knew he had only become king because the country got fed up with Richard. What would happen if they got tired of Henry too? Shakespeare summed it up: ‘Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.’

A Fighting King

Short, stout and stubborn, with little of the late Richard’s charm, Henry IV had a tough time as king. He spent most of his reign simply fighting for survival.

The Scots attacked again, making more trouble in the north. The once defeated Welsh made a comeback, producing a warrior prince called Owen Glendower, who mounted a guerilla-style rebellion that took Henry ten years to put

down. Owen was aided by the ever-helpful French who sent soldiers to support him.

When they weren’t helping the Welsh, the French were happily attacking the south

coast of England.

Rebellious Barons

In addition to trouble abroad, Henry had enemies at home. Two powerful families, the Percys and the Mortimers, kept mounting rebellions against him. The Archbishop of York kept on encouraging the rebels until Henry lost patience and executed him, a move which shocked the common people and angered the Church.

(When Henry developed an unpleasant skin disease, people said God was punishing him for giving the archbishop the chop.)

Somehow Henry survived, fighting on all fronts. In 1380 he married Lady Mary de Bohun who gave him five sons and two daughters. The eldest son died young, and it was the second, another Henry who succeeded his father.

Death in Jerusalem

According to an old prophecy, Henry IV was destined to die in Jerusalem. He probably thought as long as he kept clear of the Holy Land he’d be okay. When he collapsed during prayers in Westminster Abbey, he was carried to a room called the Jerusalem Chamber - and there he died, worn out in 1413.


Henry V 1413 - 1422

Henry IV’s reign had been a holding operation. This new branch of the Plantagenets needed a solid success to consolidate their grip on the throne. In Henry V, that’s exactly what they got. Handsome and athletic, a good scholar, a fine

musician and a superb soldier Shakespeare gives us an image of Henry as a playboy prince who changes his character when he becomes king, casting off former friends and boozing companions like the fat knight, Falstaff. He is depicted as a cool, calculating type, cunning and manipulative beneath a cheerful, friendly exterior.

Henry V is undoubtedly the greatest of England’s warrior kings. He started his

soldiering in Wales, helping his father to fight Owen Glendower. When he became king he cunningly distracted his rebellious barons from attacking each other and him by putting new life into that ever-popular old favourite, the long-running war with France. A war at which England hadn’t been doing too well lately.

Henry Victorious

Taking an invading army to France, Henry scored a brilliant victory at Agincourt in 1415 - helped by those still-deadly English archers. By 1419, English armies had reached the walls of Paris. Fed up with being bashed by the apparently invincible English - not to mention being made to look like armoured porcupines by their archers - the French gave a Gallic shrug and decided to give up.

Treaty Time

The Treaty of Troyes, signed in 1420, recognised Henry V of England as regent of France and official heir to the throne. This was a bit of a blow for the Dauphin, the French king’s son, who’d naturally assumed the job was his. To seal the bargain Henry was given the hand in marriage of Catherine de Valois, daughter of Charles VI, the mad King of France.

Henry Rules, OK!

King of England, future king of France, Henry V was top monarch, the most powerful man in Europe. Having settled the French, he decided to sort out the Saracens. His ambition, like that of most medieval monarchs, was to re-conquer the Holy Land and restore Jerusalem to Christendom.

He might even have done it, but fate intervened. While mopping up a few remaining Frenchmen, Henry V went down with a sudden attack of dysentery, allegedly dying on the toilet at Bois de Vincennes in 1422.

He was only thirty-five years old and his reign had lasted only nine years.
