So Joan of Arc is pretty bad ass.
At this time, the King of France, Charles the VII is being a huge pussy. So, Joan gets an audience (an almost impossible feat for a peasant and a woman) and demands he get his ass in gear with the power vested in her by God.
Yeah.
So, with the King pretty much willing to do anything to win, he sends her to the front. Of course, not everything is sunshine and daisies because all the military leaders were like “No Girls Allowed” and tried to exclude her from meetings and strategy talks and things. In fact, when the Duc d’Orleans ordered the city gates locked in an attempt to make Joan submit, the lady pretty much said screw you and took untrained townspeople and only a single captain to capture an entire fortress.
If that wasn’t enough, the next day the Duc d’Orleans was still being pissy at Joan being such a bad ass, that he tried to get her to stop looking so awesome by calling a retreat. Joan was having none of that, and went on to capture another British fort.
Did I mention that during this fight she got and arrow to the throat and didn’t give a shit?
The rest of her story is pretty depressing, but she was still a bad ass.
