Joan of Arc, (c 1412 – 1431) nicknamed “The Maid of Orléans”, is considered a heroine of France for her role during the Lancastrian phase of the Hundred Years’ War, and was canonized as a saint. She was born to a peasant family at Domrémy in the Vosges of northeast France and was executed on falsified charges
in an act of collusion between the church and the English at the age of only 19. Even at the time of her execution many thought of Joan as holy and some spoke in her defence. The executioner is said to have feared hell fire for killing a holy woman.
