Joan of Arc

In the midst of ''Hundred Years War'', This young colleen was confident and dare. Born as a peasant girl in the village of Domremy, She dared to lead the French army. As a young lass she witnessed visions from God, To establish the right king and to expel the odd. She was never taught to read and write, However she became proficient in fight. In this battle between the English and the French, She gave her best leadership out of her benevolence. After wining great victory in the battle of Orleans, She and her army successfully crowned Charles as the King of France. But soon she fell in the hands of the Burgundians, Who sold her to the English, and the later took Joan as a prisoner. This nineteen years old girl was burnt alive, While she was yelling loudly the name of the Christ. Her cooled ashes were scattered in Seine River, ALAS! Joan is no more, she got immortalized forever.
