Du nouveau sur la bataille d'Azincourt, il est possible que la supériorité numérique Française ait été fortement éxagérée.

Les chiffres de cette étude donnerait des forces quasiment égales:

extrait en Anglais

"The Battle of Agincourt was for centuries believed to be an engagement in which the English army, though overwhelmingly outnumbered 4 to 1 by the French army, pulled off a stunning victory. However, recent research by professor Anne Curry using the original enrollment records, has brought into question this interpretation and although her research is not finished, she has published her initial findings, that the French only outnumbered the English and Welsh 12,000 to 8,000. If true, the numbers may have been exaggerated for patriotic reasons by the English."

Quelqu'un avait déjà entendu parler de l' "Agincourt Carol", c'est un chant écrit au 15ème siècle relatant la bataille d'Azincourt. Il est surprenant au regard des écrits des historiens modernes que les archers que nous rendons responsables de la victoire ne soient même pas cité dans le chant.

Sinon le chant est pas mal, il met bien dans l'ambiance de l'époque, il est disponible sur cette page: 10ème titre "Agincourt carol" :

    That Fraunce shal rewe tyl domesday.

    Chorus

    Then went hym forth, owre king comely,

    In Agincourt feld he faught manly;

    Throw grace of God most marvelsuly,

    He had both feld and victory.

    Chorus

    Ther lordys, erles and barone

Ce n'est pas vraiment une surprise, non seulement il n'y a pas de détail sur la bataille elle même mais en plus les archers sont Gallois et pas Anglais, et ce ne sont que des archers pour lesquels les nobles Anglais comme les nobles Français, n'ont que méprit.
