Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc was a leader historically and spiritually. She was born in 1412 in Domremy, France. She seemed pretty ordinary until at the age of 14 in 1426 is when she started hearing "voices". She claimed they were from St Catherine, St Margaret and St Michael. They told her to help Charles, the Dauphin, in his fight against England and Burgundy in the 100 Year's War and to see him crowned the King of France. Initially she was laughed at until she was granted audience with Charles. He was superstitious and curious so he granted her to take a troop and to help in the Siege of Orleans. With her leadership qualities, she drove the English out and earned herself the title of "Maid of Orleans". After defeating the English again at the Battle of Patay, she brought Charles to Reims to be crowned as King Charles VII. Joan continued to fight, but was captured by John of Luxembourg. She came to trial under Bishop Pierre Cauchon for suspected heresy and witchcraft. She was burned at the stake but later had her name cleared. She led the French to victory.

What Made You Choose Her?

I chose Joan of Arc because she is so inspirational to women everywhere. Even at a time where women where looked down upon, she still stepped up and made herself an equal to men. She was one of the first to show leadership qualities in women throughout history. She shows how if you have something motivating you, it can make you accomplish great things. I llok to her as a role model and an inspiration.
