Joan of Arc was nineteen when she was burned at the stake for heresy.
She first began hearing voices and having visions at age 13.
By the time she was 17, she was wearing men’s clothes and leading armies into battle.
Joan of Arc led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years’ War, and is considered a national heroine of France and a Catholic saint.
Twenty five years after her execution, Pope Callixtus III pronounced Joan of Arc innocent and declared her a martyr.
