King Henry V.
Great Seal – Reverse – Red.
This is the great seal of King Henry V of England.
Henry V was the son of Henry IV and a great soldier, he refined his soldiering skills learned from a young age with experience from the many battles and rebellions lead against his father. He was liked by his nobles as he renewed the war with France and will be best remembered for the great victory at Agincourt where he lost only 400 men opposed to the 6,000 French they killed. He was recognised as being the next King of France but died of dysentery while on campaign in France. He left a 10 month old son Henry as the next in line to the throne.
This reproduction is the reverse side and has been taken from a copy that would have been produced directly from an original impression in wax. Preserved for hundreds of years this copy shows the fine detail of the original and makes the perfect addition for any collection.
Each monarch of England would have had their own unique great royal seal. These seals were affixed to documentation to show and prove their authentication and validate that they are genuine in the absence of the monarch themselves. Originally these would have been made from wax and held together a document or scroll by a cord passing through the wax seal.
Our reproductions capture all the fine detail of the original wax casting and are moulded and then hand cast in a resin composite to produce a very accurate and high quality reproduction.
