Welcome to part 1 of the Life and Times of Jeanne D'Arc, or as we in the States know her, Joan of Arc!  This is one of the legendary ones, and for good reasons.  In this episode we tackle a looong and inappropriately named war (in 3 distinct segments), bodies bodies everywhere, and one simple girl hearing voices in the fields.

Joan was a 15 or 16 year old girl who had visions of her destiny, delivered by angels from God, and she was to fight for and restore the rightful King of France.  But first, she has to get there, needs people to believe that she isn't insane, and needs an army.  What's a girl to do?
