I'm really struggling with questions about Joan of Arc! I have a worksheet to answer about the 1999 film Joan of Arc, but I have no clue what I'm doing because I was absent the whole first half of the movie. I tried to research info about Joan, but got nothing that really helped me!
Any advice on what I can do?!
Ten years before her death, Joan hears voices. Six years later, from the village of Domremy, she begins her mission to unite France under King Charles. First she leads a defense of Vaucouleurs against the Burgundians, then obtains safe passage to Charles, the Dauphin. He uses her, as the embodiment of the mythical "Maid of Lorraine," to raise an army, and he sends her to the rescue of Orléans. After Charles is crowned, Joan leads a disastrous campaign in Paris, where her brother dies. Then she's the victim of Charles's manipulations: she's captured in Burgundy, sold to the English, examined by Bishop Cauchon, found a heretic by the Inquisition, and burned at the stake
That was just the plot overview on the movies website. I've seen the movie so if that doesnt help put the questions you cant figure on up here and I might be able to help you answer them
