Vlad Tepes

He was the voievod or Ruler of Tara Romaneasca, known in UK as Wallachia- Romania.

He is commonly known because he impaled people and so he was called Vlad The Impaler.
Nice guy, wasn’t he ?

He was also known as Dracula because “Dracul” which means “dragon” was his nickname.

And he became Bram Stocker’s model for his horror book: “Dracula”.

HOLYROOD PALACE

Hi!

Today, we go to Scotland!

https://i2.wp.com/i2.dailyrecord.co.uk/incoming/article7655589.ece/ALTERNATES/s615/GettyImages-550369885.jpg

The Palace of Holyroodhouse commonly referred to as Holyrood Palace, is the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland, Queen Elizabeth II.

Located at the bottom of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, at the opposite end to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace has served as the principal residence of the Kings and Queens of Scots since the 16th century, and is a setting for state occasions and official entertaining.

Queen Elizabeth II spends one week in residence at Holyrood Palace at the beginning of each summer, where she carries out a range of official engagements and ceremonies.

https://www.constructionshows.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Aerial-view-of-Holyrood-Palace-Edinburgh.jpg

The 16th century Historic Apartments of Mary, Queen of Scots and the State Apartments, used for official and state entertaining, are open to the public throughout the year, except when members of the Royal Family are in residence.

https://theroyalcorrespondent.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/queeneliz2.jpg?w=760

The palace as it stands today was built between 1671–1678 in a quadrangle layout, approximately 230 feet (70 m) from north to south and 230 feet (70 m) from east to west, with the exception of the 16th-century north-west tower built by James V.

Sir William Bruce designed the 3-storey plus attic Baroque palace for Charles II, upon the restoration of the monarchy.

https://i1.wp.com/s0.geograph.org.uk/geophotos/02/34/20/2342024_4af824f5.jpg

The principal entrance is located on the west front in a recessed 2-storey range that links the 16th-century north-west tower with a matching south-west tower with three ball-finialled, conical bell-cast roofs.

The entry gateway is framed by massive coupled Roman Doric columns, with the carved Royal Arms of Scotland and an octagonal cupola with clock-face above.

https://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/02/85/20/bc/edinburgh-holyroodhouse.jpg

The north and south fronts have symmetrical three-storey facades that rise behind to far left and right of 2-storey range with regular arrangement of bays. General repairs were completed by the architect Robert Reid between 1824–1834 that included the partial rebuilding of the south-west corner tower and refacing of the entire south front in ashlar to match that of the east.

https://i0.wp.com/www.glasgowarchitecture.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/palace-of-holyroodhouse-edinburgh-aw.jpg

The east front has 17 pilastered bays with superimposed columns at each floor.

The ruins of the abbey church connect to the palace on the north-east corner.

https://i2.wp.com/www.marie-stuart.co.uk/images/Scotland/Holyrood%20Abbey.jpgFor the internal quadrangle, Bruce designed a colonaded piazza of nine arches on the north, south and east facades superimposed with columns from the three classical orders to indicate the importance of the three main floors.

The plain Doric order is used for the services at ground floor, the Ionic order is used for the state apartments on the first floor, while the elaborate Corinthian order is used for the royal apartments on the second floor.

THE DAMNED (1969)

Hi!

Today let’s watch a famous Luchino Visconti’s movies:
“The damned”

The Damned is a 1969 Italian-German drama film written and directed by Luchino Visconti.
(Italian title: La caduta degli dei [literally “The Fall of the Gods”])

The plot centers on the Essenbecks, a wealthy industrialist family who have begun doing business with the Nazi Party, a thinly veiled reference to the Essen-based Krupp family of steel industrialists.

The Italian title is the conventional translation of the term Götterdämmerung (with its Wagnerian association), but for the German version, the title Die Verdammten (“The Damned”) was chosen.

All versions use Götterdämmerung as a subtitle, however.

The Damned has often been regarded as the first of Visconti’s films described as “The German Trilogy“, followed by Death in Venice (1971) and Ludwig (1973).

Author Henry Bacon, in his book “Visconti: Explorations of Beauty and Decay” (1998), specifically categorizes these films together under a chapter “Visconti & Germany”.

Visconti’s earlier films had analyzed Italian society during the Risorgimento and postwar periods.

Peter Bondanella’s Italian Cinema (2002) depicts the trilogy as a move to take a broader view of European politics and culture.

Stylistically, “They emphasize lavish sets and costumes, sensuous lighting, painstakingly slow camerawork, and a penchant for imagery reflecting subjective states or symbolic values,” comments Bondanella.

THE STORY

The film centers on the Essenbecks, a wealthy industrialist family who have begun doing business with the Nazi Party.

On the night of the Reichstag fire, the family’s conservative patriarch, Baron Joachim von Essenbeck, who represents the old aristocratic Germany and detests Hitler, is murdered.

Herbert Thalmann, the family firm’s vice president, who openly opposes the Nazis, is framed for the crime.

He escapes the grasp of the Gestapo, but his wife Elizabeth and their children do not.

The family’s empire passes to the control of an unscrupulous relative, the boorish SA officer Konstantin.

Waiting in the wings are his son Günther, a sensitive and troubled student, and his nephew, Martin, an amoral, sexually deviant playboy who is secretly molesting his young cousin as well as a poor Jewish girl.

Martin is dominated by his possessive mother, Sophie, the widow of Baron Joachim’s only son, a fallen World War I hero.

Martin’s drag performance as Marlene Dietrich in The Blue Angel at his grandfather’s birthday celebration, notorious at the time of the film’s release, has since become an iconic image in cinema history.

Friedrich Bruckmann, an employee of the family firm and Sophie’s lover, ascends in power despite his lowly social status, thanks to Sophie’s support and the SS officer and family relation Aschenbach, who pits family factions against each other to move their steel and munition works into state control.

Friedrich kills Konstantin in the SS coup against the SA during its 1934 meeting to deal with its dissatisfaction with Hitler.

Known as The Night of the Long Knives, the SA meeting and the subsequent executions of its leaders by the SS is portrayed as a homosexual orgy and bloody gangster-style massacre.

Aschenbach then dismisses Friedrich, who now controls the family fortunes, as a weak social climber and not a loyal Nazi.

Herbert Thalmann then returns to the family table.

He reveals that his wife and children were sent to Dachau concentration camp, where his wife died; he is handing himself over to the Gestapo in return for the freedom of his children.

Aschenbach makes a deal with the discounted and ignored heir, Martin, to remove Friedrich and Sophie from control, so that Martin may get what is owed him.

Martin has sex with his mother, who falls into a catatonic state.

Now in the SS, Martin allows Friedrich (who has been decreed the name and title of von Essenbeck) to wed his mother, and then hands them poison to commit suicide.

He then hands over the family’s steel works to the state, which means that the way to war is more than secured.

THE SNOWMAN BY RAYMOND BRIGGS

https://www.indiewire.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/the-snowman.jpgThe Snowman by Raymond Briggs
1
It was a cold, cold winter’s night. In a cottage in the country,
tucked away

beneath

the hills, a little boy lay sleeping. Snow began to fall, lightly at first,
and then with giant flakes which started to settle on the ground.
At first light of morning,
the little boy turned over, yawned, and sat up. He
ran to the window and looked out.
Everything
was covered in snow

the
garden, the fields, and the
distant

hills
.
He got dressed as fast as he could. When he was ready, he hurried down the
stairs. At the
back door, he put on his boots, his scarf, and his wooly hat, and
walked out into the snow.
First of all, he thought, I’ll make some giant footsteps. Above him was a
branch of a tree. He jumped up and swung on it. The snow fro
m the branch
fell all over him
.

Then he made a snow

ball and threw it as hard as he
possibly could…
straight into the kitchen window. “You do something else”,
said his mother.
The little boy
wandered off

,
wondering

what to do, and it was at exactly
this moment that he got the idea
of building a snowman.

He built a great column of snow the size of a man and a great big snowball to

a scarf and a hat, a

for the nose,
and coal for the eyes. At last, the snowman was finished, and the boy
stepp
ed back and looked at him. He seemed to be smiling.
By this time, it was getting dark, and the little boy had to go
indoors

,
leaving the snowman standing all alone out in the middle of the garden. Up
the stairs he went, two at a time. Into the bathroom to
clean his teeth, then

and

jump along

to his bed. Soon, he was in bed and
asleep.
In the middle of the night he woke, tiptoed to the window and
peered down
at

the snowman,
shivering

. He went back to bed, but then the clock woke
him.
This time, he got up and tiptoed down the stairs, feeling rather cold. He
looked out at the snowman through the glass panels of the front door.
Suddenly, while the boy was looking at him, the snowman moved and he
actually started to walk towards the boy.
He stopped, and raised his hand.
Then
he walked forward again, right up to the boy, and they shook hands.
“Come in”, said the boy. “I’d love to”, said the snowman.

Together, they tiptoed into the living room. The snowman thought it was
wonderful. He looked
at the cat sleeping peacefully by the fire and wanted to
stroke it. But when the cat saw the snowman, he was terrified and
leapt into
the air

. The snowman jumped backward and
lurched into

the Christmas
tree, setting all the little bells ringing, the can
dles shaking, and the fairy
wobbling

. At last, it settled down and the boy plugged it in. The tree lit up
with every color you could think of. Blues and greens, reds and yellows, gold
lights and silver lights.
Then the snowman walked away from the Christm
as tree and sat himself
down in a comfortable armchair. The boy turned on the television. There
was nothing but fuzzy lines and zigzags, and it made the snowman dizzy.
Then,
with a start

, the boy realized that the snowman was sitting too near
the fire. He
realized he might melt if he got too hot, so he pulled him out of
the chair and hurried him out of the room, to the kitchen, which was cold
and dark. The boy reached for the light switch. The snowman was curious.
He wanted to switch it on himself.

The sno

plodded over

to the kitchen sink, and the boy climbed up
and turned on the cold tap.
Then the hot one as well. A big cloud of steam
rose up. Steam! It was too hot for the snowman, and he backed away.
He saw a cake with a tiny model snowman on it, pic
ked it up, and smiled.
Then he took fruit from a bowl and tried on an orange for a nose, then a
lemon, a banana, then cherry, then a huge pineapple. But his own tangerine
fitted best so he put it back on. He leaned down, opened the fridge, and
a
waft

of c
old air came out. The snowman loved it. For him, it was just like
sunbathing.
“Let’s go upstairs”, said the boy, up they went, and paused outside his
parents’ room. Someone was snoring. “Be very quiet”, said the boy. “Shhh”.
“Look false teeth”, whispered t
he boy. The snowman wanted to try them on.
He put them on and walked to a mirror to see how they looked. It gave him a
terrible
fright

. Next, he tried out some makeup, and looked in the mirror
again. He looked into
the wardrobe

and saw all the clothes han
ging up
there, and some hats. Then he tried on some
trousers

, but the
braces

caught over his nose. “Do be careful”, said the boy. “We mustn’t wake them!”

A perfume spray stood on the dressing table. The snowman
squirted

it. He
liked that. He did it agai
n. Suddenly, the perfume made him want to sneeze.
He held his nose. He mustn’t sneeze in the bedroom. The boy hurried him
out of the room. And then… he sneezed.
In the boy’s playroom was a music box. They
wound it up

and danced to it.
A
t
the end of the
dance, they both collapsed on the floor, with
balloons
and
teddy bears all around them
. “I’ve got another idea now”
, said the boy
.
“Come with me, and look out of the window”. Outside, they could see a
strange, dark object. Nodding to each other, they tipto
ed silently down the
stairs. Out through the front door, and into the open air. The dark object
seemed much bigger now they were close to it and whatever it was was
covered up with a big, black
tarpaulin

.
Summoning up

all his strength, the
boy went up an
d pulled it off. Stand
ing there was a bright, shiny, new
motorbike. The boy pointed out the controls to the snowman, turned the key
in the
ignition

, turned on the headlight, and suddenly the snowman was on
the bike and racing around the garden. For a seco
nd he stopped, the little
boy jumped on behind him, and the
n

When they came back to the garden, the snowman found his legs had started
to melt from the heat of the
engine

. He was dripping all over the place, as if
he’d just c
ome out of the
bathtub. At
that moment, the boy had another
bright idea. Grabbing the snowman’s hand, he pulled him into the garage.
Humming away in the corner was the big deep freeze
r
.
In a second, the
snowman had jumped into the freezer, and in another second, the dri
pping
had stopped. The little boy watched him lying there, and realized that an
idea had come in to the snowman’s head. Without warning, the snowman
climbed out of the freezer, and gripping the boy firmly by the hand, began to
run. Out of the garage, out i
nto the snow, out across the garden, faster and
faster,
bounding

and jumping, until suddenly the boy realized that they
were… flying!
They landed silently in the frozen north. They were in the middle of a great
forest
of pine trees
laden with

snow. But
somewhere
ahead they could hear
music and see lights.
There in a clearing of the forest, Christmas party was
taking place, and all the people at the party were snowmen. More snowmen
than you could ever imagine in your life! And there, right in the middle o

Christmas himself. “You’re just in time for the dance of the snowmen”, he
chuckled

, and clicked his fingers.
When the party was over,
Father
Christmas led the boy and the snowman to
see
a stable. Light spilled through the door, and inside they could see the
reindeer which he used to pull his sleigh. Father
Christmas
gave the boy a
lovely blue scarf as a present, and he put it on. It was time for them to go.
The snowman
gripped

the boy’s
hand
, and once again they started to run,
faster and faster, bounding and jumping, until they were flying.
At last, they landed in the garden again, and together walked slowly to the
house. The little boy shook hands with the snowman and went up to the
fr
ont door. But the snowman waved and the boy ran back and gave him a
great big hug. Then the boy went indoors, and very soon was fast asleep.
Next morning, when he woke, the room was
ablaze

with sunlight. He put
on his
dressing gown

, ran downstairs, and o
pened the front door. The sun
felt warm on his face. The boy ran out into the garden and saw… a little
heap

of melted snow, an old hat, a tangerine, a scarf, and a few lumps of
coal, but the snowman was nowhere to be seen.

CHARADE (1963)

Charade movieposter.jpgCharade is a 1963 Technicolor American romantic comedy/mystery film directed by Stanley Donen, written by Peter Stone and Marc Behm, and starring Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.

The cast also features Walter Matthau, James Coburn, George Kennedy, Dominique Minot, Ned Glass, and Jacques Marin.

It spans three genres: suspense thriller, romance and comedy.

Because Universal Pictures published the movie with an invalid copyright notice, the film entered the public domain in the United States immediately upon its release.

The film is notable for its screenplay, especially the repartee between Grant and Hepburn, for having been filmed on location in Paris, for Henry Mancini’s score and theme song, and for the animated titles by Maurice Binder.

Charade has received generally positive reviews from critics, and was additionally noted to contain influences of genres such as whodunit, screwball and spy thriller. It has also been referred to as “the best Hitchcock movie that Hitchcock never made”.

THE STORY:

While on a skiing holiday, Regina “Reggie” Lampert (Audrey Hepburn) tells her friend Sylvie (Dominique Minot) that she has decided to divorce her husband Charles.

She also meets a charming American stranger, Peter Joshua (Cary Grant).

On her return to Paris, she finds her apartment stripped bare.

A police inspector notifies her that Charles has been murdered while trying to leave Paris.

Reggie is given her husband’s travel bag, containing a letter addressed to her, a ticket to Venezuela, passports in multiple names and other items.

At Charles’ sparsely-attended funeral, three odd characters show up to view the body.

Reggie is summoned to meet CIA administrator Hamilton Bartholomew (Walter Matthau) at the U.S. Embassy.

She learns that the three men are Tex Panthollow (James Coburn), Herman Scobie (George Kennedy) and Leopold W. Gideon (Ned Glass), the survivors of a World War II OSS operation.

Together with Charles and a fifth man, Carson Dyle, they were to deliver $250,000 in gold to the French Resistance, but instead they stole it for themselves.

Dyle was fatally wounded in a German ambush, and Charles double-crossed the others and took all the gold.

While the three surviving men are now after the missing money, the U.S. government also wants it back.

Bartholomew insists that Reggie has it, even if she does not know where it is.

He tells her she is likely in great danger.

Peter locates Reggie and helps her move into a hotel.

The three criminals separately threaten her, each convinced that she knows where the money is.

Scobie then shocks Reggie by claiming that Peter is in league with the trio, after which Peter confesses to her that he is really Carson Dyle’s brother, Alexander, intent on bringing the other men to justice because he believes they murdered Carson.

As the hunt for the money continues, first Scobie is found murdered, then Gideon.

Reggie gets yet another shock when Bartholomew informs her that Carson Dyle had no brother.

When she confronts him, Alexander admits he is actually Adam Canfield, a professional thief. Although frustrated by his dishonesty, Reggie still finds herself trusting him.

Reggie and Adam go to the location of Charles’s last appointment and find an outdoor market.

They also spot Tex there and Adam follows him.

At the sight of stamp-selling booths, Adam and Tex each realize that Charles must have invested the money in several extremely rare stamps which he affixed to an envelope that has been in plain sight among his possessions.

Both men race back to Reggie’s hotel room, only to find that Reggie has given them to Sylvie’s son for his collection.

At the market, Reggie also realizes the envelope’s significance.

She, Sylvie, and Jean-Louis find the stamp trader, who returns the stamps.

Back at the hotel, Reggie finds Tex’s body, with the name “Dyle” scrawled next to it.

Convinced that Alexander is the murderer after all, a frightened Reggie telephones Bartholomew, who tells her to meet him at the Colonnade at the Palais-Royal.

As she leaves the hotel, Adam spots her and gives chase.

At the Colonnade, Reggie is caught out in the open between the two men.

Adam tells her that Bartholomew is really Carson Dyle; he survived the war and became obsessed with revenging himself on his former friends and reclaiming the treasure.

After another chase that ends in an empty theatre, Reggie hides in the prompter box.

Dyle discovers her and is about to shoot, when Adam activates a trapdoor beneath his feet and Dyle falls to his death.

Next day Reggie and Adam go to the embassy to turn over the stamps, but Adam refuses to accompany her further.

Going in, Reggie discovers that Adam is really Brian Cruikshank, the government official responsible for recovering stolen property.

His true identity revealed, he proposes marriage.

The movie ends with a split-screen grid showing flashback shots of Brian’s four identities, while Reggie says she hopes that they have lots of boys, so they can name them all after him.

MY OPINION:

I work with children at school and out of school.
I saw some of them sometimes fighting when they have problems together.
I try to tell them how important it is to speak and explain things.
Most of them understand that it is better than fighting.
But sometimes, a few of them tell me their parents tell them to fight with other children – honor matter (!!!!!!)
So…
What may I do with it?

Any idea?

A LOOK IN THE 50’S

Hello!

“Through the eyes of newsreel cameras and advertising of the time, we present an affectionate look at the way we were in the 1950’s: the way we dressed, the way we laughed (and cried) – even the way we holidayed…”

In 1950, Britain was working hard to recover from the Second World War.

Yet, as the decade went on and the economic conditions improved – prompting PM MacMillan to tell people of Britain “You never had it so good” – a cascade of wonderful gadgets found their way into British homes, and families began holidaying on the beaches and promenades.

By the end of the decade booming Britain was in overdrive with 5.5 million cars on the road, the opening of the M1 and the arrival of the first Mini.

The teenager had also come of age with new dance crazes and flamboyant fashions interspersed with bizzare hairstyles – anything to make them stand out in the crowd!

This programme also focuses on the events that shook the world during the decade; the death of George VI in 1952 heralding a new Queen, Elizabeth II, and her Coronation in 1953; the conquering of Everest: the first four minute mile; the last woman to be hanged in Britain; and the tragic Munich air disaster.

THE SCARLETT PIMPERNELL (1982)

Hi!

Today we deal with a famous English book.

https://i.pinimg.com/736x/c2/c2/c0/c2c2c009ec65f05324a97645719c6623--greenhouse-plants-garden-plants.jpg“The Scarlet Pimpernel” is the first novel in a series of historical fiction by Baroness Orczy set during the Reign of Terror following the start of the French Revolution, first published in 1905.

The novel was written after Orczy’s stage play of the same title enjoyed a long run in London and popular success earlier in 1905, after a first run in Nottingham in 1903.

The Scarlet Pimpernel is the name of a chivalrous Englishman, Sir Percy Blakeney, in the time of the Terrors in France, who, with his band of gentlemen, rescues aristocrats before they can be killed by the violent government in revolutionary France.

https://i0.wp.com/www.herbal-supplement-resource.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/scarlet-pimpernel-anagallis-arvensis-img.jpg?ssl=1

A wealthy English fop, he is known by his symbol, a simple flower, the scarlet pimpernel (Anagallis arvensis).

He succeeds by transforming himself into a formidable swordsman and a quick-thinking escape artist in addition to the strict secrecy of the group’s movements.

His identity is secret to all but his men.

Marguerite Blakeney, French wife of the wealthy English dandy, is approached by the new French envoy to England with a threat to her brother’s life if she does not aid in his search for the Pimpernel.

She aids him, and then discovers that the Pimpernel is also very dear to her.

She sails to France to stop the envoy.

A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY (1987)

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/6/60/A_Month_in_the_Country_poster.jpg/220px-A_Month_in_the_Country_poster.jpgHello!

A Month in the Country is a 1987 British film directed by Pat O’Connor.

The film is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by J. L. Carr, and stars Colin Firth, Kenneth Branagh, Natasha Richardson and Patrick Malahide.

The screenplay was by Simon Gray.

Set in rural Yorkshire during the summer of 1920, the film follows a destitute World War I veteran employed to carry out restoration work on a Medieval mural discovered in a rural church while coming to terms with the after-effects of the war.

 

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/DbMaVIQau1E/maxresdefault.jpg

The film was shot during the summer of 1986 and featured an original score by Howard Blake.

The film has been neglected since its 1987 cinema release and it was only in 2004 that an original 35 mm film print was discovered, due to the intervention of a fan.

 

THE STORY:

Set in 1920, the film follows the experiences of Tom Birkin (Colin Firth), who has been employed under a bequest to carry out restoration work on a Medieval mural discovered in a church in the small rural community of Oxgodby, Yorkshire.

The escape to the idyllic countryside is cathartic for Birkin, haunted by his experiences in World War I. Birkin soon fits into the slow-paced life of the remote village, and over the course of a summer uncovering a painting begins to lose his trauma-induced stammer and tics.

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/aJSkNgjbLok/maxresdefault.jpg

In particular, he forms a close friendship with archaeologist James Moon (Kenneth Branagh), another veteran, who like Birkin has been emotionally scarred by the war.

Moon is employed in the village under the same bequest, working to uncover a mysterious lost grave, but is more interested in discovering the remains of an earlier Saxon church building in the field next to the churchyard.

Birkin becomes accepted into the Nonconformist family of Mr Ellerbeck the station master (Jim Carter), with whom he dines on Sundays; the hospitality of the chapel congregation is contrasted against the established church, which has consigned the penniless Birkin to sleep in the church belfry.

Ellerbeck’s children eventually persuade Birkin to preach a sermon at a nearby Methodist chapel.

Birkin also forms an emotional, albeit unspoken, attachment to Alice Keach (Natasha Richardson), the young wife of the vicar.

The vicar himself (Patrick Malahide) is portrayed unsympathetically as an obstruction to the work in the church, viewing the medieval painting as symptomatic of the superstition prevalent in the community.

BATTLE OF AGINCOURT

Hi!

Why did the English troops won the Bloodiest Battle of the Medieval Age, the battle of Agincourt in 1415?

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "AGINCOURT BATTLE"

This video gives you some explanation…

The Battle of Agincourt ( in French, Azincourt) was a major English victory in the Hundred Years’ War.

The battle took place on Friday, 25 October 1415 (Saint Crispin’s Day) in the County of Saint-Pol, Artois, some 40 km south of Calais (now Azincourt in northern France).

Henry V’s victory at Agincourt, against a numerically superior French army, crippled France and started a new period in the war during which Henry V married the French princess Catherine, and their son, Henry, was made heir to the throne of France as well as of England.

Henry V led his troops into battle and participated in hand-to-hand fighting. The French king of the time, Charles VI, did not command the French army himself, as he suffered from severe psychotic illnesses with moderate mental incapacitation.

Instead, the French were commanded by Constable Charles d’Albret and various prominent French noblemen of the Armagnac party.

This battle is notable for the use of the English longbow in very large numbers, with the English and Welsh archers forming up to 80 percent of Henry’s army.

———————————————————————————————————-

The battle is the centrepiece of the play “Henry V” by William Shakespeare:

“Upon Saint Crispin’s Day
Fought was this noble fray
Which fame did not relay
To England to carry.
O when shall English men
With such acts fill a pen?
Or England breed again
Such a King Harry?”
