O.  Oliphant 





her  Life  and  death 

Margaret  Oliphant 

The  story  of  Jeanne  d'Arc,  or  Joan  of  Arc  ,  has  passed  into  folklore  and  has  been 
retold  by  many.  The  young  teenager  was  sent  by  an  as-yet  uncrowned  Charles  VII  of 
France  to  relieve  Orleans  from  siege  during  the  100  Years'  War  with  England, 
following  visions  she  claimed  to  have  received.  After  just  nine  days,  she  led  the 
French  army  to  victory  and  was  subsequently  burned  at  the  stake  for  heresy.  Later 
cleared  of  all  charges,  she  was  canonized  in  1920.
