Joan of Arc goes to the royal court and meets Charles VII
Joan of Arc in the Battlefield
When Joan of Arc was 13, she had a vision that she was told to be by the French Kings side and she was to play an important role. Joan also predicted the French defeat at the Battle of Rouvray a couple of days ahead of the messengers.
Orleans Victory over the French
This made the garrison commander in Vaucoleurs take her to the royal court where she met Charles VII. Orleans was under siege, so Joan was able to get permission from Charles to go to Orleans and help in the siege.
Joan of Arc is Captured
Joan of Arc arrived in Orleans in April. She lead the troops in the frontlines, though not directly a part of the combat.
Joan of Arc's Death
After the Orleans victory over the French, Joan became considered as being the instrument of divine providence.
In May 1430, Joan of Arc was captured by Burgundian troops. This was followed by a skirmish between the French and the Burgundians. A list of charges was drawn up against her, including heresy.
On May 30, 1431, Joan of Arc was burned at stake. She died at the young age of 19. She became a national legend of France and was later canonised by the Church.
