What made Joan of Arc a great leader?

She wasn't a great leader but she supposedly heard from God and the weak king of France allowed the girl to lead an army, which happened to win a few battles, and afterward was beheaded in England.

Joan was not beheaded in England. She was burned at the stake in France.

Where did Joan of Arc find the sword of Saint Catherine?

The sword was found in the church of Sainte-Catherine-de Fierbois near Chinon in

France. The sword had actually belonged to Charles Martel, a famous French

commander who defeated the Saracens in the Battle of Tours in the 8th century.

Joan knew from her saints that the sword, with 5 crosses near its hilt, would still

be there, buried not too deeply behind the altar of the church.

Someone went there for Joan and found it and brought it back to her after they

had rubbed the rust off of it.

What did Joan of Arc accomplish?

She was able to free the city of Orleans from British control, but sadly she was captured by the burgandians (allies of the British) and tried for heresy. She was later burned at the stake. She was later canonized by the Catholic Church in 1920.

Joan of Arc was a poor peasant girl who served the lord, and then served in the army. When she was 19, she was burned to death, but her faith in God, that he would take her up to heaven didn't die with her.

Joan of Arc was a fifteenth century peasant girl who completely reversed a war between France and England that had been going on for almost 100 years. She became a legend because she claimed she was sent by God and then backed up her claims with amazing military victories like Orleans and Patay.

Unfortunately for her the English were desperate to get rid of her so when she was caputured they rigged her trial and had her burned.

I believe she was a french lady who became a religious commander from a peasant.

Joan of Arc was not a "religious commander", but a military commander, leading and inspiring her French soldiers to victories at Orleans, where the English siege was raised in five days, May 4th thru the 8th, 1429, and at Patay, where over 2000 English archers were killed by French Cavalry. Joan insisted that her soldiers go to mass often, avoid prostitutes, and not swear so much. In that sense she was a religious leader, but she really didn't have a religious agenda other than she claimed God commanded her to raise the siege of Orleans and conduct the dauphin to Rheims to be coronated King of France. Her success in these two goals infuriated the English and is why they murdered her in a mock trial that convicted her of wearing men's clothing (which she only did to keep from being raped by low class English guards).

The Maid of Orleans and I think the Maiden of Lorraine and the Maiden of France were also given to her. Not to mention, technically Joan of Arc is a nickname too.

Who was Joan of Arc?

Answer

Joan of Arc, also Jeanne d'Arc (1412 to 30 May 1431) is a national heroine of France and a saint of the Roman Catholic Church. She believed she had visions from God that told her to recover her homeland from English domination late in the Hundred Years' War. The uncrowned King Charles VII sent her to the siege at Orleans as part of a relief mission. He did this because of all of Joan's honesty. Initially treated as a figurehead by veteran commanders, she gained prominence when she lifted the siege in only nine days. Several more swift victories led to Charles VII's coronation at Rheims, which settled the disputed succession to the throne.

The renewed French confidence outlasted her own brief career. Court intrigues slowed further offensive action. She was wounded during an unsuccessful attempt to recover Paris and fell prisoner at a battle outside Compeigne the following spring. A politically motivated trial convicted her of heresy. The English regent John, duke of Bedford had her burnt at the stake in Rouen. The ENGLISH saw her as an agent of the devil and that is why she was burnt. She had been the heroine of her country at the age of seventeen. She died at just nineteen. Some twenty-four years later, Pope Callixtus III reopened the case and a new finding overturned the original conviction. Her piety to the end impressed the retrial court. Pope Benedict XV canonized her on 16 May 1920.

Joan of Arc has remained an important figure in the collective imagination of Western culture. From Napoleon to the present, French politicians of all leanings have invoked her memory. Major writers and composers who created works about her include Shakespeare, Voltaire, Schiller, Verdi, Tchaikovsky, Twain, Shaw, and Brecht. Depictions of her continue in film, television, and song.

Joan of arc was also known as "the Maid of Orleans," she was a 15th century Catholic saint, and national heroine of France. A peasant girl born in Eastern France, Joan led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, claiming divine guidance, and was indirectly responsible for the coronation of King Charles VII.

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 was Joan of Arc's armor different?

As Female Knights were something new, portions of her armor had to be adapted for her feminine frame, and the breastplate was probably silk-lined on the inside to protect her breasts. it is also often depicted in the art of Joan Of Arc that she had skirts that extended over her armored legs- and the coat of arms insignia displayed on the front panel , this was not worn in the field but in Church- as at the Coronation at Rheims and would be analogous to a modern Dress Uniform of the Army,. etc. there may have been a diagonal pattern on the skirt- and her crest enclosed within a Diamond lozenge-again indicating a Noblewoman- which she was.

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!

Is Joan of Arc a knight?

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 Girl-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.
