ROUND #156 :: JOAN OF ARCDESCRIPTION
Or Joan of Arc. Probably one of the most famous historical figures of all time, Joan really needs little introduction. But briefly: Joan of Arc was born a peasant girl in 1412 France and became a military leader who persuaded the King, Charles VII, she had divine right to expel the English from Northern France. After victories at Orleans and Patay she failed to take Paris and was captured by the Burgundians and sold to the English. She was tried for witchcraft and heresy, and supported by a tribunal of French Ecclesiastics who were in league with the English, she was burned at the stake in Rouen in 1431 aged just 19.
But for further information on her there is always Wikipedia:
One of the interesting things about Joan is we know so much about her, certainly after she came to the 'authorities' attention. In fact the whole of her trial is documented almost word for word. However, don't feel restricted to presenting her in medieval attire. Feel free to experiment with her outfit and time period but that is not a strict requirement. Interpret her as you will.

April 26th, 2009 #6Following the 38 year war of attrition between the European nations after the collapse of the EU in 2086, the Schengen Treaty of 2124 was signed to cease all hostilities. The war had left the western European countries unable to sustain themselves on their depleted natural resources. With impenetrable Russia to one side and the Atlantic on the other, the New European Council passed the emergency Act of 2126. This Act allowed for all of western European nations to individually invade or occupy the African continent in an effort to obtain the necessary resources to rebuild.
Unable to sustain a prolonged naval campaign circling the Iberian Peninsula to reach Africa, England requested permission from the French Government to cross to the Mediterranean by land with the promise of a large percentage of their new colonies' wealth. French Prime Minister Riberrie opposed this idea fervently and was subsequently overruled and exiled by the French Parliament. While the French armed forces were occupied with securing land in Africa, the British supply train which ran from Northern France to the southwestern coast, became more and more brazen in their treatment of the locals. Towns were sacked and French citizens executed without trial for alleged crimes against the British troops. The French government turned a blind eye to these atrocities as it found itself without the man power to react, and because it feared that if the truce with England was broken, France would have easily fallen given that it was effectively already invaded.
However, in a small town of the province of Lorraine, after witnessing the death of her family at the hands of a small British patrol, a young French girl named Joan took up arms in self defense and fought back killing the English attackers. Fed up by the state of affairs and inspired by this young girl's courage the townsfolk joined their beloved La Pucelle in her campaign against the British supply train. Steadily gaining popularity and support from neighboring towns and provinces, Joan began her quest to drive out the British troops and to restore PM Riberrie to the head of the Parliament.
She wears the color purple on her arm as both a rallying symbol and in mourning of her family and countrymen. And what French girl would be caught dead without her smokes?! eheh
