DURATION OF TIME
Dramatic Time.-Ten days with intervals (P. A. Daniel, 'Time Analysis,' Trans. N. Sh. Soc., 1877-79, p. 290 f.).
Historic Time.-From 1414, the year after Henry's accession, to May 20, 1420, the date of his betrothal. Of this, five years (1415-20) pass between days 8 and 10.
1 Daniel assigns this scene (the princess's English lesson) to the time between the French king's offer of her hand to Henry and his rejection of it,both referred to in the Chorus
to Act III.
2 This appears to be on the morrow of St. David's Day, i.e. March 2; hence after the battle, and before the betrothal (v. 2.).
