Azincourt

3
Azincourt is a commune in the Pas-de-Calais department in northern France.It is named after the Battle of Agincourt of 1415 which took place here.GeographySituated 12mi north-west of Saint-Pol-sur-Ternoise on the D71 road between Hesdin and FrugesEtymologyThe toponym is attested as Aisincurt in 1175, derived from a Germanic masculine name Aizo, Aizino and the early Northern French word curt 'farm with a courtyard' . It has no etymological connection in French with Agincourt, Meurthe-et-Moselle, which is derived from another Germanic male name *Ingin-. The battle was named after a nearby castle called Azincourt. The modern settlement has in turn been named after the battle in the 17th century.HistoryAzincourt is famous as being near the site of the battle fought on 25 October 1415 in which the army led by King Henry V of England defeated the forces led by Charles d'Albret on behalf of Charles VI of France, which has gone down in English history as the Battle of Agincourt. According to M. Forrest, the French knights were so encumbered by their armour that they were exhausted even before the start of the battle.Later on, when he became king in 1509, Henry VIII is supposed to have commissioned an English translation of a Life of Henry V so that he could emulate him, on the grounds that he thought that launching a campaign against France would help him to impose himself on the European stage. In 1513, Henry VIII conclusively crossed the English Channel and stopped at Azincourt.
