Subject:        Henry V Question

Does anyone know why in Henry VI Part 1 Shakespeare uses no French
accent for Joan of Arc, but then in Henry V he uses an accent for
Katherine (and the captains)?  Was there anything happening historically
that could have accounted for this change?  Do you know of any instances
of accents being used in other plays at the time?

Thanks.
