The most famous image of Henry V is held by the National Portrait Gallery, it is a 16th century copy, in it Henry
looks as if he is at prayer. His hair is cut very short around the ears and at the back which was the style of the time.
It is thought that he was painted this way deliberately to hide the right side of his face on which he is said
to have a nasty arrow wound received at the Battle of Shewsbury on the 21st July 1403.
