In speaking of Joan of Arc, Winston Churchill said, "Joan was a being so uplifted from ordinary run of mankind that she finds no equal in a thousand years"
Our Joan of Arc Trinity Necklace features three strands of Bicone Hematite hand wrapped in Silver. A powerfully dramatic image of Joan, it shows her steadfast, fearless, well armored and on horseback. We affectionately call her the Patron Saint of Cowgirls due to her divinely inspired riding skills that allowed her to lead the French Army to victory and win back the crown and fulfill her life mission. On the back of the medal is her battle banner with the Fleur de Lys that are her symbol, along with the word Doremy, the name of her village and childhood home. The back of the medal features her family crest and battle banner. The crest was officially given to her parents after she was martyred at the age of 19. The Sword in a crown flanked by the Lorraine cross and her banner flag is the official French symbol of Joan of Arc.
More on Joan's life"
We know a great deal about her life because her trials were meticulously written down and preserved for the past 800 years. .At the age of seventeen Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orleans, lead the broken spirited armies of France and drove the English from her homeland. Her well documented victories ended the 100 Year War, thus restoring the rightful king to the throne of France. Her power proved too great for the men of her time and she was betrayed and sold to the English shortly after the kings coronation. After a long and arduous trial she was found guilty of heresy and witchcraft. She was burned at the stake at the age of 19 in the year 1431. Some thirty years later she was retried and found not guilty. She was canonized St. Joan of Arc in 1920.
