Agincourt, the scene of the famous battle between the English and the French, is situated in the north of France, in the department of Pas-de-Calais, to the S.W. of Boulogne. The battle took place in October, 1415, when Henry V., who had landed with a force of 15,000 men at Harfleur, was opposed at Agincourt by an army numbering 50,000, under the Constable D'Albret. After a bloody contest lasting for three hours, the English gained a signal victory, losing only 1,600 men, while the French loss was estimated at 10,000. One of the results of this engagement was the Treaty of Troyes (q.v.). A good deal of the action in Shakespeare's Henry V. takes place on the battle-field of Agincourt.
