Since Henry 's uncle was the Black Prince of Wales, Henry V feels obligated to uphold his family 's reputation by being a warrior king. But unlike his uncle, Henry V treats the people of England and of France as equal citizens. An old friend is found guilty of stealing from a church along the journey. Henry believes that a French church or a French store is the same as an English store and the law of England still applies, as shown by this quote.“We would have all such offenders so cut off, and we give express charge that in our marches through the country there be nothing compelled from the villages, nothing taken but paid for, none of the French upbraided or abused in disdainful language. For when lenity and cruelty play for kingdom, the gentler gamester is the soonest winner.” (King Henry V 3.6 113-20) Even though Henry seeks to unite the kingdoms of France and England to enlarge his domain, he also wants the people of France to like him.

Notwithstanding the numerous potential motivators, enough evidences exist to show that the core motivation to the call of crusading was their quest for salvation that was expressed as remission and forgiveness by the church and provided as an indulgence. It is indicated that Pope allowed the passage of peasants into Europe so that they may play a role in the Crusade with the sole objective of conquering and reclaiming the new territories. Conversely, Christians asserted that the Crusades were part of controlling the Holy land after the Muslims had waged war and control over the lands earlier occupied by Muslims.

This culminates in a battle between his followers and Arthur’s, and ultimately ends in Arthur’s death, marking the end of his kingdom. “” (White #) All of Mordred’s actions would never have occurred if not for Guinevere’s affair.
