Joan of Arc was born in Domrémy in the Lorraine region of
France around 1412. She claimed, as an adolescent, to have been
instructed by saints to free France from English occupation. She
made it her mission to get to the Dauphin’s side and inform him
of her divine calling. An emblematic figure of the Hundred Years’
War and true military leader, she was finally captured in 1431 by
the Burgundians, who were allied to the English. Following a trial,
she was sentenced to be burnt at the stake.
