her Life and death
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.
