LANCASTER
The king hath call'd his parliament, my lord.
[…]
I will lay odds that, ere this year expire,
We bear our civil swords and native fire
As far as France: (5.5.2)

Henry IV Part 2 ends with a hint that, in the play's sequel, England will be at war. This turns out to be an accurate prediction. In Henry V, Hal decides to invade France and reclaim some territories that his family has always believed belonged to them.
