May 30 1431 – Joan of Arc is Martyred

Jeanne d'Arc

Over two years after she won her historic victory against the English, Jeanne d’Arc or Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake for heresy on May 30, 1431. The Maid of Orléans, 19-year-old Joan was martyred following an inquisition headed by Bishop Pierre Cauchon. Joan of Arc was later beatified in 1909 and canonized in 1920 and is now regarded as one of the patron saints of France.
