  1. I find it hard to beleive that she took a crossbow to the throat and kept on fighting the next day. Perhaps the arrow grazed her neck or hit the shoulder as in Luc Bessons movie…

  2. Wonderful documentary! As a French, it was really funny to hear French names and cities being butchered for 30 mins! Just as a clarification, the famous knight La Hire's name is simply pronounced as La-E-R (he is well known by age of empires 2 players)

  3. Lady Joan of Arc is still one of my most favourite historical figures. Was she speaking to God or was she just a paranoid schizophrenic at the right place and time? Either way, her bravery in battle and her uttermost devotion to her cause at such a young age, not to mention her horrific death, must ensure that she remains in our memory permanently

  4. 21:09 is why Joan did what she did. She heard a story that an armored maiden from Lorraine would save France. She said to herself: I'm from Lorraine. Charles needs legitimacy. I just got an idea!
