Try looking under feminism first - I did my undergraduate thesis, a
large part of it anyway, on their relationship try anything by Lenze,
Green, Neely.

Hope that gives you a place to begin

Subject:        Henry 5

Dear SHAKSPEReans:

I've been teaching Henry 5, and one of my students asked whether it is
significant that Henry pays Montjoy for delivering his message to the
French king, "There's for thy labour, Montjoy" (3.6.157).  Would it have
been standard practice for an opposing king to pay the other's
messenger, either in the early 15th or in the late 16th centuries?  Is
this gesture meant to highlight Henry's magnanimity?  Might it also be
meant as an ironic contrast to Henry's attempt to pay off Williams in
4.8, where Williams refuses Henry's money?

Thanks in advance for your help.
