Did you know that Joan of Arc was born today in 1412? During her life France and England were at war and the French armies were losing. When Joan was 16, she left her village to help the French king’s armies. Her exact role in the battles is unclear, but after she joined, the French armies started wining battles and forcing the English army out of their land. Sadly, Joan was captured by the English and put on trial for ‘heresy’. She was burned at the stake. Four centuries after her death, Joan of Arc is still a popular subject for literature, art, sculpture, operas, televisions, movies, and plays.
