It was her family last name or surname. the Of business implied shewas a Noblewoman, as a Female Knight surely would be. there was nodirect term for distaff armored types- but up to a point Dame (Lady) would suffice.

She fought for the French and made the English mad. So they burned her. She did this because she heard voices and they were telling her to do this. She thought it was God giving her a special task. :) ACTUALLY- they burned her because they thought she was a witch.

Her family was exceptionally poor She was (obviously) female, and females couldn't serve in the military of France so she had to hide this fact when she enlisted. Joan of Arc was constantly being spoken too by a number of different Saints who's physical bodies had passed away.

Joan of Arc was a very religious peasant girl, who heard the voices of angels telling her to fight for France.

Certainly, and one the very few females at arms! Queen Isabella was also a Female Knight and rode in the field with the Spanish Army on campaigns, but this is somewhat played down. Girl Knights were rare. Girl Pages, who may have worn armor- but did not carry weapons- were younger (usually say, of G…irl-Scout age) and they were used for diplomatic couriers etc. To assault or murder an unarmed Girl Page was a capital crime and was fortunately, rare in the Dark ages.

The court initially wanted to convict her of witchcraft, but uponexamination they found she was still a virgin, and people believedthat to be a witch one had to have had sex with the devil. So,since Joan of Arc was still a virgin, the court couldn't try herfor witchcraft, and tried her for heresy in…stead. Joan of Arc was also convicted of heresy because the English andBurgundians wanted Joan dead for her successful efforts in leadingthe french against her, and so that she could not escape and leadthe French in more successful campaigns, and because her deathwould severely demoralize French troops. The trial and convictionof heresy were orchestrated so that Joan could be killed. Clarification: The court could find nothing in Joan's testimony that could convicther of heresy. Instead, the bishop in charge found an obscuremandate in the Old Testament that forbade women from wearing men'sclothing. The bishop had Joan sign a document in which she promisedto never dress like a man again. At night British authoritiesremoved all of the female clothing from Joan's cell and left herwith nothing to wear but men's items. When she appeared in courtthe next day, the Bishop told her that she had violated heragreement and found her guilty of heresy. (MORE)

It is not a town name, so it must be a family name. Now on the other hand we have Mary of Burgundy- who was a noblewoman who eventually became a Queen.

Arc was evidentally a family name. oddly, Arc en ciel absolutely ( no other common use in French) i…nvariably means a RAINBOW. the phrase literally means Arc in the Heavens or sky ( curved).
