    I love Drunk History, and this is the only story I've felt a desire to speak on: In 1425, Joan was 13. One day, in a moment free from chores, she sat alone, pondering in her father's garden. This is her account: "It was summer, about noon. Suddenly, there was a great light. I heard a voice calling my name. After I had thrice heard this voice, I knew it was the voice of an angel. I was very much afraid. I knew it was the archangel Michael. He was in the form of a man. His voice of beautiful, sweet, and humble, and he spoke the French language. He told me of the pitiful state of the kingdom of France, and that I was to come to the aid of the king. He told me that I must be a good child and that God would help me. He also told me that Saint Catherine and Saint Margaret would come to me and that I should act by their advice. That they would lead me in what I had to do. And that I should believe what they would say. When he withdraw from me I wept, and kissed the ground where he had stood." When Joan was ten, the mad king Charles died, but his 23-year old son, Prince Charles, was afraid to make decisions or take risks. He lived secure and comfortable in the walled city of Chinon, where his advisers told him to wait for better times to be crowned. Jeremy D. Adams: She's not the fraud, the saint, the psychotic, the maniac, that people have imagined she might have been, just in order to understand her. In a way, her being terribly ordinary makes her harder to understand, makes the real mystery of Joan of Arc. G.K. Chesterton wrote that Joan chose a path and went down it like a thunderbolt. I agree with the judgement of the very great Regine Pernoud, who summed up decades of deep research about Joan with the statement that the story of Joan of Arc is both 'too beautiful and too terrible to ignore.' She died at 19. Before they lit the fire she called to a man to take a nearby cross, "Hold it high so I may see it through the flames." She repeated, "Jesus," with all the strength of her conviction and cause, she wasn't crying out for help out of it. Whatever else Joan's story is, it's a story of faith, whatever else it is, it's a story of a young woman's religious conviction and religious experience. So she's remarkably captivating, she somewhat mysterious figure, but a great story of courage, and espically courage from a young person.

    The French treated Joan like shit. She was constantly imprisoned for crossdressing and they betrayed her.

    I get it that she is drunk, but the story is very oversimplified.

    I know she ended up dying young (burned at the stake no less), but at least her life was meaninglful. I don’t mean I’m the sense that she won a war, I just mean that there was meaning and purpose behind everything she did because of her faith, and idk, that’s a thing to envy. The rest of us are going to die too (hopefully not burned at the stake), only our deaths probably won’t be as purposeful and full of meaning. There’s something to say for having purpose, for having faith. It adds meaning to even the smallest things in life. Which can seem silly too, but man, wouldn’t it be something to truly believe you mattered, that everything you did mattered, that nothing was chance. What a way to live. Also super stressful though, because suddenly everything you do holds weight, and ugh that’s a lot.

    This is a horrible rendition of the story of Joan of Arc. She wasn't just captured in a battle and burned for wearing men's clothes. She was betrayed by the very man she helped put into power. He left her to rot because he was scared of her influence, and letting her be turned over to England was advantageous for him. Then she had the very church she had dedicated her life to turned against her as a weapon. There was also the bit abot how she repented, and was probably going to get off with a light punishment, so they tried to rape her, and stole her dress, which forced her to wear men's clothes again, ensuring her conviction because of her "relapse" into heresy.
