In Joan's early life, she saw visions at the age of 13. Her visions were from God, and she lived a religious life too. The visions told her to fight for France.
You want me, a 13 year old girl to fight the English and save France?!
She wanted to fight for France, but couldn't because she was a woman, so she cut her hair, put on men's clothing, and set off to find the king. When she found him, she convinced the king for protection from the guards,
Lets go see the king.
The king got out a suit of armor for her, and a sword that she told them that it was behind the altar in the church, Joan led the French troops into Orleans to attack the English. While fighting, she took an arrow to the arm. Despite all the pain, she pulled it out and kept fighting. Three days later, she led France to attack Orleans itself.

After that battle, the English, who had 6,000 soldiers, were planning to attack Campiegn, a French-held town near Paris. Joan led a group of only 300 soldiers, but at evening, she launched a surprise attack. There were too many English soldiers, so France had to retreat. The mayor saw the English coming, and closed the drawbridge before Joan could get in, trapping her outside. Then she got captured by the English.

Joan was accused for witchcraft and heresy by the English. Then a bishop came, and Joan warned the bishop that God will do something to him if they did this, but he didn't listen.

Then while she was on trial, the king forced English out of France, then Joan was burned to death at the stake. Joan's life then became a legend. Later, Joan's family asked the Pope to reopen her case, to see her. Joan was found innocent of all charges, and she became recognized as a Catholic Saint. Today she is one of the most beloved French heroes.
