... V The culmination of Shakespeare’s mature sequence of English histories, Henry V , the last play of the Second Tetralogy , is comparatively easy to date thanks to an uncharacteristic topical reference. At the start of Act 5 the Chorus explicitly compares Henry V’s welcome back to London after his campaign in France to the anticipated welcome the Earl of Essex would receive should he return victoriously from his current expedition against Tyrone’s rebellion in Ireland (5.0.30–5). Essex’s planned campaign was common knowledge as early as November 1598 ,...

... V The fourth play in Shakespeare's second historical tetralogy was entered in the Stationers' Register on 4 August 1600 and printed in a bad quarto the same year. This text was reissued in 1602 and (falsely dated 1608 ) in 1619 ( see Jaggard, William ). A good text appeared in the First Folio ( 1623 ). A line in the Chorus to Act V seems to refer to the Earl of Essex 's campaign in Ireland, which would date its composition between 27 March and 28 September 1599 . It is based mainly on Holinshed 's Chronicles . Aaron Hill's radical...
