|Katherine (Kate) the French
Princess played by Emma Thompson
Katherine is a soft spoken French woman who has a rudimentary knowledge of the English Language. When Henry V negotiates for peace with France Katherine herself was part of the settlement.
|Thief Who was Hung
This is one of King Henry's friends from the past. When he is caught stealing from a French province that Henry has acquired he is tried for thievery. King Henry himself supervises the execution of this thief who was once his friend.
This guy first meets Henry V before the start of the Battle of Agincourt. He is sent by his superiors to see if Henry the king will consider paying a ransom in exchange for his life being spared. Henry gets very mad at this concept and replies "bid them achieve me and then sell my bones."
|A French Leader of the Agincourt
This French commander personally leads the attack on King Henry's forces. He dons a protective helmet and mutters about how very little that will need to be done to defeat Henry's forces. When all of his ranks are broke and his army is defeated he agrees to help his assistant slaughter all of the English boys who were present at the battle as apprentices.
|Narrator played by Derek Jacobi
This is the voice that unites the entire movie. When battles wane he appears to explain the action. When new scenes need a transition he speaks. In the modern age of digital transitions like wipes and dissolves this narrator gives an old fashioned touch to the movie and its heritage based on a William Shakespeare play.
Duke of York
In the film this brave soul volunteers to lead the attack on the French. He fights valiently and dies with a swarm of French swords stabbing through his body while blood pours from his mouth.
The Three Traitors
Early in the film King Henry discovers that these three men who have been spying for the French. Before telling them that they have been discovered he asks them how they would deal with traitors. They claim that no mercy should be given. After hearing this, King Henry promptly has them stripped of their rank and executes them for high treason.
