BeeJewelled’s necklace ranges are named after those influential and important women we have looked up to throughout history.
Born around 1412, Jeanne d’Arc is considered a heroine of France for her role during the Lancastrian phase of the Hundred Years’ War. With no military training, Joan convinced the embattled crown prince Charles of Valois to allow her to lead a French army to the besieged city of Orléans. Her army achieved a momentous victory. After seeing the prince crowned King Charles VII, Joan was captured by Anglo-Burgundian forces. She was tried for witchcraft and heresy, found guilty, and burned at the stake in 1431. She was just 19.
By the time she was officially canonized in 1920, the Maid of Orléans (as she was known) had long been considered one of history’s greatest saints, and an enduring symbol of French unity and nationalism. Not bad for the peasant daughter of a tenant farmer!
