The club's name invites the comparison with the raffish Prince Hal, though the promise of a corresponding transformation to martial hero-king was aborted by Frederick’s early death.

Image: An oil painting of a group of men seated around a table in a dimly-lit room. A bust of Henry V is over the fireplace. All of them wear powdered wigs and fashionable frock coats. The most prominent figure stands to the right of the table in a striking red silk suit. Prince Frederick appears in the doorway on the far right, peering around a curtain.
