Joan of Arc

at the Coronation of Charles VII

1854: Musée du Louvre, Paris

At the battle of Orléans in May 1429, Joan led the troops to a miraculous victory over the English. With the siege of Orléans lifted, Joan escorted Charles to the cathedral at Rheims for his coronation, arriving on the 16th of July 1429. Charles was proclaimed King of France in the cathedral and during the ceremony Joan stood by his side holding her battle standard in one hand, "It had undergone the suffering..." she said "so it deserved the glory." She was 17 years old. Less than two years later, she was burned at the stake. Charles VII was as absent from her defence as he is from this scene.
