Shakespeare wrote Henry V in 1599, at the time of Queen Elizabeth"s reign. Shakespeare tried to portray the monarchy as important and noble people. He did this so that the queen would think well of him as at that time the actors and the use of the theatres would have been financed by important people. At that time there was no one more important that the monarch. The play portrays the war between England and France and Henry"s campaign to gain control of France, which was believed to be rightfully his. The play starts by showing Henry...
whom the pressure was too much and who turned to war crimes. On the other hand there are those who withstood the mental torment of battle. It portrays war as a fight for the country"s honour and a demonstration of its power, it also shows the nobility and the other, more devastating effects on the soldiers. At the closing of the play there is a glimpse of hope that the peace will last but in the final chorus it states that the peace wasn't as long lived as people hoped. The French regained France in Henry"s son"s reign.
