A picture for the play King Henry V

King Henry V

"Short live the King!" Shakespeare's tragedy is about the short life and rule of Henry V, who served as King from 1413 to 1422 and died at 36. King Henry V, also called Henry V was probably written by Shakespeare in 1599. One of our favorite one-line Shakespeare insults from this play: “[Thine] face is not worth sunburning.”
