Transcript of The Black Plague - in the Beginning

The Black Plague/Joan of Arc/The Fight Against the Muslims! YAY!
The Black Plague - in the Beginning
The plague started in China and spread throughout Asia, Persia, Syria, Egypt, India, and through Europe
Fleas carried around the disease, then gave it to rats, which gave it to humans
The Black Plague got its name because the swelling would happen in the groin, neck, and armpit, then it would turn red, to dark purple, then to black
The boils would ooze blood and puss
The plague would go in the Winter and come back in the Spring
It killed two thirds of Europe's population
If you had the Plague, you would mark your doors with a red cross so the other people would know to not go in.
If you got the plague you would die in the next 2-6 days.
Peoples Reaction

Flagellants were a group of men thought the Black Death was a punishment from God and went from town to town whipping themselves
Children started the song Ring Around the Rosy
Alfonso XI of Castile died from the Plague, He was the king of Castile, Leon, and Galicia
People wearing bird masks (to protect them from the plague) would throw you on to a cart and then bury you if you were dead
Joan of arc
Spain and Portugal fight the Muslims
Joan of Arc is best known for leading the French in the Hundred Year War against the English
When King Charles first met Joan he dressed as a courtier to try and fool Joan. Joan, however, immediately approached the king and bowed to him.
When Joan traveled she cut her hair and dressed to look like a man.
King Charles of France, who Joan had helped to reclaim his throne, did nothing to help her once she was captured by the English.
In 1920, Joan of Arc was proclaimed a Saint of the Catholic Church.
Her nickname was "The Maid of Orleans".
It is said that Joan knew she would be wounded in the Battle of Orleans. She also predicted that something bad would happen at the city of Compiegne where she was captured.
