Hello,
I'm looking for an answer for this question:
What humiliating gift was sent to Henry V by french heir to the throne and what smart response did he (Henry V) give them?


Regards.

If you ask Shakespeare, he will tell you the gifts were tennis balls.


When we have march'd our rackets to these balls,
We will, in France, by God's grace, play a set
Shall strike his father's crown into the hazard.
Tell him he hath made a match with such a wrangler
That all the courts of France will be disturb'd
With chases. (1.2.10)
