In 1337, King Philip VI of France was determined to conquer Guyenne, an English colony in France
I've had enough of France's antics!
But little did he know, he would spark a series of wars against England in what we know now as the 100 Years War
England held the advantage early on, such as the Battle of Crecy in 1346, which introduced warfare to the longbow
However, the unsung heroine of the war, Joan of Arc, had a vision from God to lead France to victory in 1429....
Follow me! For I have a vision from God!
She led the French to break up the English Siege of Orleans that year, but would be captured and burned for heresy by the English.
We must stop the Siege!
In the end, it was Joan of Arc being just the morale booster France needed to eventually end the multiple sieges England tried to perform, and led to the successful removal of English colonies and conquests in France in 1453 and the end of the 100 Years War. Much further down the line, Joan of Arc was canonized in 1920 and was used as a symbol of France ever since the 100 Years War ended
