3 Times Joan of Arc

On our way to the Dordogne, France we stayed one night in Orleans, France. The city of Joan of Arc (Jeanne d'Arc).

The city has a lot of statues of her. The one at the top of this post is the nicest one to my opinion.

On this one she is more combatant.

This is how she ended.

Joan of Arc, or Jeanne d'Arc in French, (c. 1412 – May 30, 1431) was a 15th century saint and national heroine of France. She led the French army to several important victories and led king Charles VII to his coronation. She was captured by the English and tried by an ecclesiastical court led by Bishop Pierre Cauchon, an English partisan; the court convicted her of heresy and she was burned at the stake by the English when she was nineteen years old. Twenty-four years later, the Vatican reviewed the decision of the ecclesiastical court, found her innocent, and declared her a martyr. She was beatified in 1909 and canonized as a saint in 1920.
