Joan of Arc was a peasant girl, other than hearing voices, starting at 13, she had a pretty normal life. She attended mass everyday. Some of the voices told her to help Charles.
I must go help Charles? This is weird, but I must go.
Joan listened to the voices in her head and went top visit Charles, she saw him and was put to the test. Charles put another man on the throne to see if she really was special, despite the disguise, she found him right away and was accepted into the French Army.
Thank you very much
Okay, I will allow yo to fight for me, but only because you have passed the test.
Joan's firs mission was to free the city of Orleans. In May of 1429, Joan led her army into battle, The battle started on May 4. During the battle, which was started as a sneak attack, initiated by the French Joan was struck with an arrow, but instead of leaving the battle, she yanked it out and continued on.
Ouch!!! but i'm okay. keep on fighting
HAHA, we have got you now!!!!
As the mayor of Orleans, saw the English coming, and ordered the towns drawbridge to be raised, this caught Joan off guard. She was trapped on the outside of the town, left to fend for herself against the Burgundians and the English. The burgundians captured Joan, the were holding her for ransom, but instead of the French paying it the English did.
Help! Help! let me in!
Joan was put to trial while in British custody, she was accused of witchcraft and herecy. Her trial began in February of 14 31, she warned the Judge he was making a mistake and they were all in grave danger. However, in the end after lot's of torture, she signed a confession.
I am not guilty, but this torture is too much, I must confess
Joan was sentenced to death, she was burned at the stake in front of a large crowd, though in the end she confessed for a deed she did not do, she showed tremendous bravery throughout her ordeal. After her death, they realized they had made a mistake and released Joan of all her charges. In 1920 she was made a Saint by the Catholic Church.
I will let you know, we have cleared your daughter of all her crimes and made her a saint.
