Joan Of Arc The women who never gave up,
Joan of Arc was born on the 6 January 1412 in the village of Domremy, France, during the series of conflicts which we now call the Hundred Years War. Why was she so famous? Joan Of Arc ??? Joan of arc is not only

battles like Orleans and

she was a women who
fought against many
odds and convinced the
french even though she
was a
women she could still lead a battle and
she was as equal as

coast of france this affected the rest
of her life, she was born in the hundred
year war in doramay a village which was then in the duchy of Bar. Her parents owned about 50 acres of land and her father supplemented his farming work with a minor position as a village official, collecting taxes and heading the local watch. Several local raids occurred during her childhood and on one occasion her village was burned.

Joan said she was about nineteen at her trial, so she was born about 1412; she later testified that she experienced her first vision around 1424 at the age of twelve years, when she was out alone in a field and heard voices. She said she cried when they left, as they were so beautiful. She said Saint Michael, Saint Catherine, and Saint Margaret told her to drive out the English and bring the Dauphin to Reims for his coronation.

At the age of sixteen, she asked a kinsman, Durand Lassois, to bring her to nearby Vaucouleurs where she petitioned the garrison commander, Count Robert de Baudricourt, for permission to visit the royal French court at Chinon. Baudricourt's sarcastic response did not deter her. She returned the following January and gained support from two men of standing: Jean de Metz and Bertrand de Poulengy.[19] Under their auspices, she gained a second interview where she made a remarkable prediction about a military reversal near Orléans. This is where her journey really starts!!!
