Want to know where Henry V is set? Shakespeare set Henry V in a variety of city and country locations in England and France. The action takes place immediately before, during, and after, the Battle of Agincourt (October 25th, 1415) in France. The battlefields occur at Harfleur and on the fields at Agincourt. Much of the action takes place in royal palaces where the serious business of negotiations, treaties and all diplomatic matters is conducted.
