(Act.Scene.Line)
Quote #10

Henry the Sixth, in infant bands crown'd King
Of France and England, did this king succeed;
Whose state so many had the managing,
That they lost France and made his England bleed:
Which oft our stage hath shown; and, for their sake,
In your fair minds let this acceptance take. (Epilogue)

Talk about irony. After all the bloodshed and struggle (which included a lot of talk about how Henry's family lineage gave him rights to the French throne), Henry's efforts to rule France don't mean anything because, later, he dies and his son, Henry VI, takes over and loses France.
