Twelve years before the truce with France was intended to end, Henry V resumed the 100 Years' War. He won the famous Battle of Agincourt and took Rouen and Paris, controlling all of France north of the Loire. With the peace treaty of 1420, Charles VI of France recognized Henry V as his heir and regent and married him to his daughter, Catherine of Valois. Henry died unexpectedly at Vincennes, fighting the French and thus left his cross-channel kingdom to his one-year-old son Henry VI.
