Montjoy

Character Analysis

Montjoy is the French Herald (a.k.a. messenger). He's got a pretty terrible job (it's his duty to deliver the Dauphin's snotty messages to King Henry), but he somehow manages to be dignified and polite. In fact, the guy's so likeable that King Henry tips him after Montjoy delivers the following message to Henry from King Charles: "Though we seemed dead, we did but sleep." (Translation: Even though you defeated us at Harfleur, we're going to stomp all over you at Agincourt.)
