How would the Reformation have played out in France had England conquered France during the Hundred Years' War (perhaps as a result of English King Henry V living much longer than he did in real life)?

Since Henry VIII is likely not King/doesn't exist in this timeline(Lancaster's survive and York line from which modern English kings are descended I'm going to assume are successfully killed off) I am going to presume the English remain Catholic. As it is Henry VIII's split from the church had little to do with theology more to do church politics(the divorces and his failure to get his friend elected pope) and practical benefits(like taking monasteries). A King of France/England would probably not face the same issues for all we know Henry V's France could dominate the Catholic Church even though the Avigonese papacy in our timeline was over at this point.

So guess the change would be mainly be England whose switch to Protestantism had the most to do with politics and the least to do with religious grievances. The reformation started in Saxony and am doubtful regardless of how church politics changes that said changes would satisfy Luther, Hussites etc.
