DE­FY­ING JOAN OF ARC

History of War - - BURGUNDY’S WARS -

A pro-bur­gun­dian gar­ri­son re­pels Joan of Arc’s forces at the Siege of Paris in 1429. This is Joan’s first ma­jor set­back and Bur­gun­dian soldiers later cap­ture her at the Siege of Com­piègne. She is sold to the English and sub­se­quently tried and ex­e­cuted by a pro-bur­gun­dian ec­cle­si­as­ti­cal court.

Cravant is a sig­nif­i­cant but for­got­ten An­globur­gun­dian vic­tory. De­spite its suc­cess, English and Bur­gun­dian forces rarely fight to­gether again

Joan of Arc’s cap­ture by the Bur­gun­di­ans is memo­ri­alised in a mu­ral at the Pan­théon in Paris
