    The Battle of Azincourt was fought on October 25, 1415, Saint Crispin's Day, in northern France as part of the Hundred Years' War. The combatants were the army of King Henry V of England and that of Charles VI of France. The latter was not commanded by the incapacitated king himself, but by the Constable Charles d'Albret and various notable French noblemen of the Armagnac party. The battle is notable for the use of a relatively new military technology, the longbow, which helped the English compensate for their inferior numbers. The battle was also immortalized (and somewhat fictionalized) by William Shakespeare as the centerpiece of his play Henry V.
