"like Joan of Arc"

 Jeanne d'Arc,  known in English as Joan of Arc or the Maid of Orléans, was born in northern France ca.1412.

Claiming divine inspiration, she led the French Army to several victories in the Hundred Years' War, but was eventually captured and tried by the English before an ecclesiastical court.

She was found guilty of witchcraft and burnt at the stake at the age of 19.

In 1920 she was canonized by Pope Benedict XV, and subsequently  became one of the most revered saints of the Roman Catholic Church.
