Joan of Arc, or should I say Saint Joan, was also known as The Maid of Orleans for her role in helping King Charles II liberate France from British rule. She truly is the epitome of resiliencewhich is this week’s photo challenge.

She received visions from Archangel Michael, Saint Margaret and Saint Catherine of Alexandria instructing her to help King Charles II release France from British domination. She attained many swift victories in battle which boosted the moral of France and which led the way to final victory for the French.

In 1430 she was captured by the Burgundian faction who were still under British Rule, tried for various crimes and burned at the stake. She was only 19 years old.

26 years later, the evidence against Joan was reviewed and she was proclaimed innocent and declared a martyr. In 1803 she was declared a symbol of France by Napoleon Bonaparte and canonized in 1920.

    Ahhh yes Vanayssa, Boadicea. Now that’s a name I have not heard in a long time. I think you have given me an idea for my next art creation :). Thank you!
