The Siege of Caen took place during the Hundred Years War when English forces under Henry V laid siege to and captured Caen in Normandy from its French defenders.

Following his victory at Agincourt in 1415, Henry had returned to England and led a second invasion force across the English Channel. Caen was a large city in the Duchy of Normandy, a historic English territory. Following a large-scale bombardment Henry's initial assault was repulsed, but his brother Thomas, Duke of Clarence was able to force a breach and overrun the city. The castle held out until 20 September before surrendering.[1]

Caen remained in English hands until 1450 when it was taken back during the French reconquest of Normandy in the closing stages of the war.[2]
