Today in History: The Coronation of Henry V

Henry V was crowned King of England at Westminster Abbey on 9th April in the year of our Lord 1413. There was a great snowstorm on the day of his coronation and many wondered if this was an ill omen or a good one. Henry was the second King of the House of Lancaster, preceded by his father, Henry IV and succeeded by his own son, Henry VI. Henry V would go on to conquer France at the Battle of Agincourt and marry the French Princess, Catherine of Valois.
