Hail Joan: an improvised conspiracy to end the Hundred Years War
Modern histories of Joan of Arc are often inextricable with belief in mysticism, miracles and monarchist propaganda. With fresh new theories proposed by skeptical feminist scholars like Nancy Goldstone, I will be unpicking the political and logistical realities of 1428 that led the maid with the pageboy haircut to be placed in front of the weak-willed Dauphin of France, and the role of one determined duchess in orchestrating her rise to prominence.
