Because of his extraordinary traits, the great King Henry V successfully led his small army of men to such victory from the great French in the Battle of Agincourt. King Henry’s self-discipline, reflective to his commitment to kingship, had continuously led him to great virtues that ultimately influenced his knights to become true men of chivalry. Aristotle from Book II Moral Virtue “We describe as opposed to the mean those things in which we are more prone to over-indulgence; thus profligacy, which is excess, is more opposite to the mean than its corresponding deficiency is.” It is in fact natural for humans to be obsessed with ideas or things but in the end it will only weigh a person down. Luckily, people can be trained to end bad habits.

In his play, 1 King Henry IV, William Shakespeare is concerned with the popular concepts of power and legitimacy, or the right to rule. Shakespeare specifically calls into question the concept of legitimacy of power through one of the main characters of his play, Prince Hal. Prince Hal’s public image challenges the notion of this concept. In this essay, through the analyzation of various passages, I argue that Prince Hal upsets the notion legitimacy of power because his public image contradicts King Henry’s mode of being and mirrors the problematic reputation and actions of Richard II, which adds to King Henry’s fear of losing the throne, and ultimately results in King Henry’s hesitancy to make him heir to the throne. Largely due to his public
She points out that his poor dead body is as cold as a key. Anne’s sympathetic description of the dead king’s corpse shows her sorrow. As she uses the word “[p]oor” (5) to describe his corpse, Anne suggests that Henry does not deserve to be dead. Her praise of the righteous House of Lancaster, and pious King Henry also suggests that her family members were undeserving of such a fate. By using these praises to compliment her Lancasterian family, Anne puts an even greater emphasis on the extent of her loss.

Henry's father made him speak English, and Henry said, "It was 1942, and they were desperate for [me] to learn English. Which only made [me] more confused when [my] father pinned a button to [my] school shirt that read, “I am Chinese.” This shows Henry's father's pride and separation from the Japanese. Because of his school and his American life, Henry's pursuit is to be open, and he is friends with people that his father would not approve of.
