Saint: St Joan of Arc

St Joan of Arc is the heroine of France as she helped the King of France reconquer his country.  She rallied an army behind her and, one by one, freed the cities of France.  She was betrayed by the Duke of Burgundy and sold to the Bishop of Beauvais, a servant of the English, for ten thousand gold francs.  The Bishop put her on trial for treason and heresy, and his court condemned her to be burned at the stake.
