Henry V Act 5, Prologue Summary

  • The Chorus comes out on stage and tells us about Henry's trip to Calais and his victorious return to London, which we'll just have to imagine because it's impossible to portray such a journey on stage.
  • The Chorus tells us that the Holy Roman Emperor made a trip to England to try to negotiate peace between England and France and that Henry has returned to France.
