Henry V is crowned King of England at Westminster Abbey. He will soon invade France as part of the Hundred Years' War and comes very close to conquering France.

After his victory at the famous Battle of Agincourt, Henry forces Charles VI of France to sign a treaty which names Henry regent and heir-apparent to the French throne, after which he is married to Charles' daughter, Catherine of Valois. It's only Henry's unexpected death due to dysentery while still in France that probably prevents him from a complete conquest.
