In Joan's early life she wasn't very popular. She was a daughter of northern french peasants. Joan experienced voices and visions. Her voices told her to help Charles, the dauphin, to the throne and to fight for the french
Go and fight for the french
Later in Joan's life, she traveled to Reims for Charles to be crowned. Even though he was the dauphin, he had not been crowned. When Charles claimed that he was the right king, this led to a bloodier fight in the Hundred Years war
Joan's first challenge was to free the city of Orleans. The English had already had control over Orleans for 6 months. The French were on the verge of defeat before Joan marched in with her sword and banner and defeated the English. Joan then led french troops across a moat then stormed the city walls where the french ran the English into a retreat.
The French troops now had a leader and they left Joan's army. In May of 1430, Burgundy's army with 6,000 attacked Joan's army of 300. They stood their ground for a little bit until more troops joined the fight. Joan's army had to retreat. The town's mayor saw English troops and closed the drawbridge, trapping Joan outside
Joan was to have a trial after her capture. Her trial ended with a punishment of execution. On May 30, 1431, a huge crowd gathered to see her be burned. Her burning was a common death sentence for heretics and witches.
In 1455, Joan's family requested that the Pope reopen her case. It turns out, she was found innocent for all of the charges. In 1920, Joan was recognized as a catholic saint. Saint Joan is one of the most beloved of french heros.
