Joan of Arc

What are Joan of Arc's achievements?

Joan of Arc saved her country from being taken over by the English. She turned around a war that had been going on for almost a hundred years and France was about to lose. Her first victory at Orleans had been a miracle and her victory at Patay is considered one of the greatest military victories in history.

Who was Joan of Arc's companion nun?

It should be understood the best-know female Knight was not canonized until l920, which was only a few years after World War I was concluded. Since then there are at least two religious orders that have her namesake, and as one might assume they are a. of French origin ( as she is patroness of France, as St. Patrick is patron of the Emerald Isle) - and one of them has a pronounced Cross of Lorraine on the part of the habit that resembles, in a sense the breastplate of a knight. as Joan was not sainted until l920- well neither of these orders was extant, say in l429, when Joan took the field at , among others, Rheims. The cross of Lorraine, with two horizontal bars, is correctly associated with the Maid, as is the various combinations of fleurs de lis. She operated in the field under the name of De Lis- of the band or tribe of ( The Lily).Even then they had code names. I hope this is of some help. Joan had a sister named Catherine, but she was neither a Nun nor a Female Knight. They did have Girl Pages in the Middle Ages, they wore armor but did not carry weapons. Used for diplomatic courier work.

How did the hundred year's war change warfare in Europe?

no

Ignore above

It proved to Europe that armoured knights were not invincible. Up until this point armoured knights on horseback were seen to be the best soldiers in an army and undefeatable by infantry. English victories such as Crecy and Poitiers proved that common men (archers) could defeat mounted knights with the correct planning.

However, as it saw the rise of the English archer it also saw the demise as the French learnt how to defeat the weapon by charging quickly and by not engaging in open warfare.

The Hundred Years War also involved many different directions for warfare. It involved sieges, open battle and chevauee (double check) where the English pillaged the French lands of Brittany.

Where would you like to be in five years?

This is one of the types of question that you may get at an interview; they are intended to get you to talk about yourself in a fairly informal manner. The questions are usually about some aspect of your own life so it is not possible for anyone else to answer them for you.

You should think carefully, before attending the interview, about such questions as this so as to be prepared when asked. There are several such questions and there is a great deal of information on the internet and elsewhere about techniques to employ when attending interviews.

Who was the actress buried in a Joan Of Arc Costume Twentieth Century?

This may help, and my memory serves me right. the Actress Lupe Velez, who died very tragically in l944 was laid out in a dress that might be considered a sort of borderline St.Joan get-up. It was a lovely white oufit with a printed Cross of Lorraine on the centerline of her breast, also her hair was set ina pageboy, very St. Joan-Ish. There was no armor plate but in a vague sense-and maybe the wartime atmosphere played a role here-you might considr it a (class a Dress) St. Joan Costume. Ms Velez was eventually buried in Mexico. There are photographs of her Body in various books dealinfg with Hollywood scandals. Once a Knight is enough!

What were they fighting over in the hundred year war?

The French throne. The Plantagenet house of England had claims to the throne of France back to William the Conqueror of Normandy. The Norman Dukes who later became Kings of England were bound to swear fealty to the French King - and when they had gained England and become more powerful than France it was seen as humiliating for them to continue to swear fealty. And so the Hundred Years War began with the French House of Valois and the English House of Plantagenet both claiming the throne of France.

Castles
Hundred Years War

How were stone castles defended?

They were defended by an army of soldiers and many other things, such as a moat surrounding it. The moat would be good, as the attackers would need to row a boat through it or swim. They would be easy targets for the archers on the top of the castle.

Another thing that helps defend a stone castle is a curtain wall to prevent fires alighting and as a strong shield. These type of castles had high walls to make sure climbing intruders would need a longer time to get on top.

They had battlements like a crenel and merlon so that defenders can fire missiles through them.

Machiolations are boxes that have holes in them so that boiling oil or stones could be dropped onto attackers.

Hope this helped. (:

Who won the Hundred Years' War?

The House of Valois was eventually victorious over that of the Plantagenets.

Although England won most of the battles, it was France who actually won the war as they profited the most from the ordeal. France gained nationalism, something vital to an empire that wants to sustain its independence. During the war, France was made up of states each ruled by a Duke with their own interests at hand. Late in the war they realised the importance to unite in order to push the English from their lands. England lost because they had insufficient numbers occupying the garrisons they conqured and this allowed the French to slowly wear them down, along with the help of great leaders such as Bertrand du Guesclin and Joan of Arc. The English were eventually repelled to the Pale of Calais. But technically the English won the war 1337-1453!

IMPROVEMENT.

I can't agree with the affirmation that technically the English won the war, at least starting from 1449, when the French completely overwhelmed the English also in pitched battles, thanks also to the power of their artillery led by Jean Bureau a genius in handling cannons . Some examples: Battle of Formigny, siege of Cherbourg and battle of Castillon, the last one of the war, where the English, under Talbot, were sent to attack the strong entrenched French position equipped with 300 guns of various calibre.

How did the battle of agincourt start?

The Battle of Agincourt was the final battle in the 1415 invasion of France by Henry V. He was fighting to claim the throne of France from King Charles the Mad and also to avenge the men that died in the Siege of Soissons.

The invasion began with the lengthy siege of Harfluer in which much of Henry's army fell sick with dystentry and died. The 12,000 strong army was halved in size and Henry decided to march this small force of just over 6000 men from Harfluer to Calais but after being unable to cross the Somme they had to travel in land and they were caught by a French army (numbers range between 15,000-30,000) near the castle of Agincourt.

The battle was fought on St Crispin's day in atrocious conditions. The English eventually won when their archers defeated the numerous French attacks

For more information in a fictional sense I can recommend Bernard Cornwell's 'Agincourt' but bear in mind that this is a work of fiction based on true events.

Napoleon Bonaparte

Where did Napoleon plan the hundred days war?

The short answer was that he didn't. Napoleon, while imprisoned on Elba, was not far away from the continent of mainland Europe which he had dominated for the past 2 decades. On resuming power in Paris he decided his best option was to attack his enemies piecemeal, Britain, Prussia, Austria & Russia. & while he might well have defeated any of these foes in single combat, if two join together.... he meets his Waterloo..........It doesnt really amount to much to blame Grouchy for the defeat there, Napoleon was the Emperor, Napoleon gets the spoils....the 'what ifs' of the campaign, a splendid vignette of 3 months culminating in 1 day of tremendous carnage, are too nemerous to consider briefly. Put succinctly the British were too good in dogged defence to be defeated by the crude frontal assault that the Emperor used on the day. 'They came on in the old style....' & Wellington admitted he was never so near to defeat. If Blucher does not appear at Waterloo then all else does not apply...Previously Ney had had chances at Quatre Bras & Napoleon at Ligny needed to be sure of where the beaten Prussians had retreated to. From the point of view of the French both of these combats sow the seeds of defeat for the French, but it was undoubtedly a close run thing..........
