King Richard II kept his face clean-shaven when it was conventional for men to wear a beard.   
He developed elaborations on court protocol. He insisted on new forms of address such as "Your Highness" and "Your Majesty".

Queen Philippa's New Year gift to her husband King Edward III in 1333 was a silver cup, ewer, and basin.     
The ewer was decorated with figures of Julius Caesar, Charlemagne, King Arthur, and Lancelot.

Just found this thread - do you know if the whereabouts of these gifts are known?

From 1399 onwards the government of King Charles VI of France refused to recognize Henry IV as King of England. Henry was denounced as a traitor to his lawful sovereign.

King Henry V had an extensive library and was literate in English, French, Latin, and Welsh. He enjoyed books on history, theology, and hunting, as well as the works of Chaucer, Hoccleve, and Lydgate.

King Henry VI had no taste for war. He paid little attention to the worsening of the English position in France. In 1440, when he had the opportunity to campaign in Normandy, he sent Richard of York in his place. Henry VI concentrated his attention on the foundation of Eton College.

One of King Edward IV's priorities in his early years on the throne was to repay the debts owed by the Crown to London merchants and Italian banks. By the end of his reign he had repaid debts totaling 97,000 pounds.

Pomme, I did some research. I found some information on New Year's Gifts for Queen Elizabeth I 1599-1600. I found nothing more on Queen Philippa's New Year Gift.

Richard III was the last Plantagenet King of England. He ruled from 1483 to 1485. During the mental health breakdown of King Henry VI, Richard served as Lord Protector of England.

Eleanor of Aquitaine was the Queen Consort of King Henry II.   
On May 27, 1152 Eleanor revoked a grant of the forest of Le Sevre to the abbey of Saint-Maixent. She had co-signed this grant with her first spouse, King Louis VII of France in 1146. Eleanor regranted the grant in her own right.

He is such an interesting character, it is a pity he died so young. I particularly enjoyed the Netflix movie about him - The King.

Your research is so interesting CyrilSebastian  Star

Butterbean, I am glad that you liked learning about King Henry V.     
 
Berengaria of Navarre was chosen as a wife to King Richard I by Richard's mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine. The marriage with Berengaria would bring a dowry that would help Richard finance his efforts in the Third Crusade.
