Henry V Characters

The Duke of Burgundy is a neutral party in the war, as loyal to England as to France, and therefore serves as negotiator between the two parties after the Battle of Agincourt. 

He feels the damage done to the country in a way that the two Kings do not. The agreement to the peace treaty pleases him greatly, and leaves him less depressed; he is able to mock King Henry over his quickly-gained intimacy with Katherine, and make some juicy comments about women to him. He is a politician rather than a warrior, and concerned with the damage the war does to commerce.
