At first, all of the knights put under Joan's command were very skeptical of her ability to lead. But, they soon gained respect for her after she lead them to victory many times.
While Joan was respected by her knights, and led them to win many battles, her story has a sad ending. After she was captured by the English she was tried for witchcraft and heresy. When she was found guilty, the English burned her at the stake in a village square similar to this one.
The invention of the cannon helped lead the French to victory over the English. It also led to the decline of feudalism, since castles weren't an effective defense against cannons.
