Joan of Arc, canonized in 1920, is a French historical figure and Catholic saint. In her youth, Joan—or Jeanne, as she was called in French—received visions of angels and saints that encouraged her to support Charles VII in his campaign to liberate France from English dominion in the early 1400s, during the Hundred Years’ War. In 1430, at approximately age 18, Joan was captured, tried, and burned at the stake by Burgundian forces, a group of French nobles allied with the English.
