History Today: Joan of Arc born in 1412

Today (supposedly) marks the birthday of the French national heroine and Catholic saint, Joan of Arc (the Maid of Orleans). The peasant girl born in the east of France was said to have acted under divine guidance when she led the French army to victory over the English during the Hundred Years’ War. Many quick victories made her famous. In 1430 soldiers of Burgundy captured her and gave her to her English enemies who tried her for heresy and burned her at the stake (1412-1431).
