NGC - Coin of the Day: Henry V of England defeated the French at the Battle of Agincourt on this day in 1415. This English coin, called a Noble, dates from this era.

That one whets the appetite for a noble.....or an angel....but they're always too expensive to pull the trigger....

A great trigger for those interested in medievals of that time (guess who? )
Agincourt harkens back to a day when national leaders -- alonmg with their allies -- led their men into battle, often with disastrous consequences.

The French side suffered thousands of deaths, largely of knights and nobles. At the top rung of society, the Dukes of Brabant, Bar and Alencon were all killed. On the English side, the Duke of York and Earl of Suffolk did not survive the battle.
Here is a double gros/groot of Antoine, Duke of Brabant who died that day, age 31 (Obv legend: ANTHONIVS DEI GRA DX BRABANTIE):



Here is a gros of Robert, Duke of Bar, the father of Edward III who succeeded him as Duke of Bar in 1411, and died at Agincourt, age 28 (Obv legend: ROBERTVS DUX BAR):



Charles, II, the Duke of Lorraine did not take part in the battle, but his younger brother, Frederick, Count of Vaudemont, was slain, age 44. Here is a gros of Lorraine, depicting Charles (Obv legend KAROLVS DVX LOTHOR Z M):



I am sure that other CCF regulars have coins to contribute from some of the other combatants, like Charles VI of France.
