Dark Days for the City of Lights
Joan’s story begins in one of the darkest time of the One Hundred years war. Wolves roamed the country side. Plagues ravaged the population. France was in need of a serious morality boost, but there was no Eiffel Tower. No croissants. No cute little beret clad kitties with French accents. No “France.” Carved up like a Christmas turkey, a good chunk of France was controlled by the Burgundians whose loyalty was to the English.
Stay tuned for part two of Joan of Arc
*ok I am being slightly unfair. The French had longbows too. They just couldn’t figure out how to turn them into hats.
