Title -  Joan of Arc


Description -  Joan of Arc (c. 1412 - May 30, 1431), nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans", heroine of France for her role during the Lancastrian phase of the Hundred Years' War, and was canonized as a Roman Catholic saint.  Joan of Arc was born to Jacques d'Arc and Isabelle Romée, a peasant family, at Domrémy in north-east France.  Joan said she received visions of the Archangel Michael, Saint Margaret, and Saint Catherine of Alexandria instructing her to support Charles VII and recover France from English domination late in the Hundred Years' War.  The uncrowned King Charles VII sent Joan to the siege of Orléans as part of a relief mission.  She gained prominence after the siege was lifted only nine days later.  Several additional swift victories led to Charles VII's coronation at Reims.  This long-awaited event boosted French morale and paved the way for the final French victory.
