Treaty of Troyes

Supported by House of Burgundy, Henry V took Rouen and Paris and controlled all of France north of the Loire. In 1420, a peace treaty was signed at Troyes virtually fulfilling the English aims of war. The French king, Charles VI declared his son illegitimate and recognized Henry V as his heir and regent. Henry married the French king's daughter, Catherine of Valois, and returned triumphantly to England in 1421.
