In 1429, a 13 year old peasant girl of France, named Joan, claimed that she had received a vision from GOD telling her to free France from England, and to see to it that Charles VII, the heir to the throne, became king.
At age 17, Joan disguised herself as a man, and had soldiers safely bring her to Charles VII. Charles tested her to see if she was all she claimed to be, and, successfully completing the test, Charles agreed to let her come to make sure he became king.
Joan lead the French into battle, bearing her armor and sword, and filled the soldiers with hope! They freed many nearby lands from the English.
After Charles became king, Joan launched a surprise attack of only 300 soldiers against an army of 6,000, rapidly increasing, English soldiers. They held their ground well, but soon gave in to retreat, leaving Joan in the hands of the enemies. Charles made no attempt to save her, even though he was in her debt. and the English paid the Burundians a huge ransom for her.
Then, Joan was put on trial for many months, resulting in her being shaved, and burned for heresy, lying, witchcraft, and dressing up as a boy. She later became a hero.
Charles VII was king for 40 years, forced the English out of France, and united the country. Joan was later found innocent, and recognized as a saint, along with making a good name for women.
