Joan of Arc (People)

Joan of Arc lived in France sometime around 1412 - 1431. She's the patron saint of France. Joan is remembered by the French because she led the French to a decisive victory over the English during the Hundred Years War. Joan of Arc was a French national heroine who became a saint of the Roman Catholic Church with her greatest triumph being to lead a French army against the English who were attacking the city of Orleans. During battle, the English captured and handed her to the French who accused her of heresy and tied her to the stake burning her at the age of 19. 24 years later, the church examined her and declared her innocent, even canonizing her as a saint in 1920.
