Jeanne d'Arc

By TrevBatWCC    
Wandering round to the far side of Cannes marina, came across this statue of Joan of Arc, standing proud amongst these tall palm trees in a small park area on Boulevard du Midi Jean Hibert.
A patron saint of France, she was born c.1412, and was considered a heroine of France, and helped recover France from English domination. On 23rd May 1430 she was captured and handed over to the English, put on trial for a variety of charges and after being found guilty, at only about 19 years of age, was burnt at the stake on 20th May 1431. 25 years later, the trial was re-examined and charges withdrawn, and she was declared a martyr. In 1803 she was made a national symbol of France by Napoleon.
