Morality of King Henry V
Throughout the five act in the play King Henry the V, King Henry shows his morality and character through many actions and decisions.

The way that Henry speaks is an extraordinary quality that is very tricky and plays a big role on his soldiers and the people around him. As we read in the play, King Henry has many speeches that were made to determine his English soldiers. For example, Henry refers to his soldiers as more closely impacted names like brother and friend. Henry speaks very sophisticated and pumps up his men to be just as eager to fight as he was.
