Sir Thomas Erpingham, KG
Managed to finish another BTD HYW figure while watching a classic, favorite movie of mine, Murphy's War. Anyway, the figures is of course, Sir Thomas Erpingham, who famously commanded the English archers at Agincourt, and was memorialized by Shakespeare.
Although he is best remembered as a commander at Agincourt under Henry V, he established his reputation as a loyal knight under Henry IV. At Agincourt, Sir Thomas was already in his 60th year, and the twilight of his career. He died in 1428, a year before The Maid arrived at Orleans.
