Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans" is a folk heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. She was born at 1412 and at eastern France.

She was captured by the Burgundians, transferred to the English in exchange for money, put on trial by the pro-English Bishop of Beauvais Pierre Cauchon for charges of "insubordination and heterodoxy",and was burned at the stake for heresy when she was 19 years old.

When she was 16 years old, she received divine revelation. Claiming divine guidance, she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII of France.
