  1. Joan of Arc was very important woman in the history of France. At a young age she started hearing voices that she said were from God. They told her to help stop the English during the Hundred Years War, since the French were losing territory that should have been theirs. She went to war with, and helped raise the morale of the French army and in turn, they gained back some of their rightful territory like the city of Orleans from the English. She was also the first heroine to have ever inspired as many people as she did.

  2. Joan of Arc was a very important person in history and France due to her boldness, morale, and leadership in the battle of Orleans (among others) also being that she was a woman. This was a major turning point in the Hundred Years War. She also anointed Charles the 7th because of a holy message delivered to her. She was later falsely condemned to burning at the stake by the English as an excuse to execute her.
