The Story of Joan Of Arc

Andrew Lang

Book Description

"The Story of Joan of Arc" by Andrew Lang is a biography that tells the remarkable tale of Joan of Arc, a young French peasant girl who became a national heroine and a symbol of courage and faith in the 15th century. Joan of Arc, often referred to as the Maid of Orleans, is one of history's most iconic figures. Born in Domrémy, France, in 1412, Joan believed she had received divine visions that instructed her to help the Dauphin of France, Charles VII, in his quest to reclaim the French throne from the English during the Hundred Years' War. Despite her humble background and lack of military training, Joan led French troops to several important victories, including the lifting of the siege of Orleans. Lang's biography explores Joan's upbringing, her divine visions, her role in military campaigns, her capture by the English, and her trial and execution for heresy. Throughout her story, Joan of Arc's unwavering faith and determination shine as she defied societal norms and faced incredible challenges. Lang's account of Joan of Arc's life and her ultimate sacrifice paints a vivid picture of a young woman who played a pivotal role in shaping the course of French history. Joan's bravery, devotion, and resilience continue to inspire people around the world to this day. This book is copyright free and can be downloaded for free.
