Joan is said to have been born on January 6, 1412.
Joan wanted the British out of France and the monarchy of France restored.
Joan of Arc commanded the French army, a job usually reserved for aristocratic noblemen in the Middle Ages. The fact that she was a 17 year-old peasant girl who, by her qu…ick, sensible, and decisive tactical decisions led the French to raising the famous Siege of Orleans by the English and to winning several other battles with the English, most notably that of the Battle of Patay, where over 2000 English soldiers were killed trying to retreat from the Loire valley back to Paris (June, 1429). Joan rode a horse very well and inspired her men with her courage. For a peasant girl to accomplish this was unheard of at the time. The fact that a peasant girl could accomplish this stunning feat, in an era where only aristocratic men could do it, proved to the common people of France (and other places) that they were just as good as the aristocrats and that France was their country, too, not just belonging to the king and his great noblemen. Eventually, 4+ centuries later, the French revolution changed all that. Joan also proved that a woman could be just as capable as a man if she had the natural ability to lead men in battle, which Joan did by her inspiration and great courage. The English feared and hated Joan, which is why she was burnt.
Joan had 3 brothers and one sister. Her siblings were named: Jacqemin, Jean, Pierre and Catherine.
St. Joan of Arc was a pious French girl who lived in the early fifteen century, she was the youngest of five children of a peasant farmer. Below is an extract from the Catholi…c Encyclopedia (link below for the entire article). Born at Domremy in Champagne, probably on 6 January, 1412; died at Rouen, 30 May, 1431. The village of Domremy lay upon the confines of territory which recognized the suzerainty of the Duke of Burgundy, but in the protracted conflict between the Armagnacs (the party of Charles VII, King of France), on the one hand, and the Burgundians in alliance with the English, on the other, Domremy had always remained loyal to Charles. Jacques d'Arc, Joan's father, was a small peasant farmer, poor but not needy. Joan seems to have been the youngest of a family of five. She never learned to read or write but was skilled in sewing and spinning, and the popular idea that she spent the days of her childhood in the pastures, alone with the sheep and cattle, is quite unfounded. All the witnesses in the process of rehabilitation spoke of her as a singularly pious child, grave beyond her years, who often knelt in the church absorbed in prayer, and loved the poor tenderly. Great attempts were made at Joan's trial to connect her with some superstitious practices supposed to have been performed round a certain tree, popularly known as the "Fairy Tree" (l'Arbre des Dames), but the sincerity of her answers baffled her judges. She had sung and danced there with the other children, and had woven wreaths for Our Lady's statue, but since she was twelve years old she had held aloof from such diversions.
Joan's sister (Catherine) is believed to have died in childbirth. Her death must have been after mid-1429 because there's a quote from Joan (related by an eyewitness) dated fr…om about August 1429 mentioning a desire to return home and see her sister again. The film "The Messenger" invented a purely fictitious English attack on Joan's village during which Catherine is killed and then posthumously raped by an English soldier when Joan was a young child. This never happened. The only two attacks on Joan's village were the following: a minor assault in 1425 (by a Burgundian army led by Henri d'Orly) during which some livestock were stolen and then later returned; and a more serious attack in July of 1428 (by another Burgundian army led by Antoine de Vergy) during which the crops were burned and some of the buildings were damaged. There was no loss of life since the villagers had fled to the nearby city of Neufchatel before the troops arrived. Joan's family and some of the other villagers spent that time at an inn run by a widow nicknamed "la Rousse". Catherine was not killed during that attack, the army which launched the attack was not English, nor did the incident occur during Joan's childhood - she would have been around sixteen in 1428.
Joan of Arc's parents names were Jacques d' Arc and his wife Isabelle.
Let us be guided by high imagery, She was French, she had dark hair worn inthe rather (Knightly) Pageboy style, and she probably had Blue eyes, msot Johannic artists sho…w her with Blue eyes, she is certainly a popular subject with artists, paritculairtly those from France. There is nujmerous artistic license. Medieval wqarriors sometimes wore their crest or insignia on a sort of vest or almost T-shirt worn over the breastplate, usually some sort of cruciform (Cross My Heart) The Diagonal civil and GSA Flag-salute witht he right hand held diagonally over the heart comes form the medieval times. She may have worn a special and lovely white cape or capelet over all else . this was only worn on formal occasions, and had all the frills of a modern cape stole. (equivalet of a class A Dress uniform) the paintings where she is shown in church (Coronation of Charles following the battle of Rheims) are missing this feature. well Good luck.
She felt that as long as she trusted in God, she had nothing tofear. All would turn out well in the end. She was a very devoutCatholic.
joan of arcs atrributes were leadership and that she was sent by god.
Jeanne d' Arc's enemies were the enemies of France - the English. She lived in the end of the 15th century AD/ CE and she was proclaimed Saint by the Catholic church later. …She suffered a martyr's death on fire.
As she was a female knight, Joan was awarded a patent of arms- what is popularily called a crest or coat of arms. this was worn on the front of the skirt portion of her …feminine armor. the design was enclosed in a stylized diamond, indicating a Lady (Diamonds are for Heifers!) a good memory jogger. The arms or insignia proper exist in two variations the colors are Blue and White. (in Both) a sword placed naked- that is exposed, pointed upwards, flanked by two fleurs-de-lis (all white) on a blue background and above the sword- here is where there are differences- either a crown which represents service to the Crown (of France) or in a variant a sort of Silver Ring- possibly similar to the (brass rings) originally used for target practice in the Middle Ages. These are her arms. there is some controversy whether she wore the cross of Lorraine- with two horizontal bars, on her breastplate with a white vest sort of like a T-shirt (forgive me for analogy) worn over her armor, with this design. But the two fleurs de lis the upward pointing sword and crown- or ring design are basic to the heraldic arms of Dame Jeanne D"arc. there you have it. The banner she carried with God blessing the French royal emblem, a fleur-de-lis also.
The names of her grandparents are unknown.
Joan of ark lived from 1412-1431.She was born in France in a little village called domermy.When Joan of arc was little she didn't go to school instead she helped her mum at ho…me.When she was born there was a war between French and English so there wasn't any school and the countries were poor. When she was older she didn't get married. Hoped you liked it and it is true bye
From some limited relics we have- she had dark brown or black hair.
Joan of Arc never had a surname. In official documents she only every went by her first name, the title d'Arc (of Arc) was only added later. After Charles VII granted Joan…'s family a noble title they took the title du Lays. The most accepted surname is d'Arc. Hence the full name Jeanne (Jehanne) d'Arc It is believed that the maid of Orleans ( Jeanne D"arc or reasonable variations such as Jehane, spelling hardly an exact science in Medieval times) was her real name. Jeanne had, according to some sources a sister named Catherine, which is a good French name. ( several Saintes by that name of French Origin and also the actress Catherine Deneuve) Once a Knight is enough. Her sister did not take up the Armor and sword bit, as far as is known. Joan's name was not Joan, 'nor did she come from a village named Arc. Joan is the English translation of Jehanne. Jehanne's name was recorded as Darc, Tart, Dark, Darx, or Tarc. A historian mistook her name as d'Arc, meaning "of Arc" many years ago. The name stuck. We cannot be sure of Joan's real last name, as Last name's were used rarely in the 1400's. And, just a note, Joan was from a place called Domremy.
She was a female fighting in a male-dominated army. She was still a teenager while most soldiers were much older. She wore mens clothing and cut her hair short like that of a …man. She was a simple peasant while most soldiers came from noblefamilies. She claimed to receive messages and visions from God and thesaints.
