IMAGES FROM JEANNE’S LIFETIME

We hope you will enjoy seeing some of these images – they are, in the most part, places which were important in Jeanne’s life – often where significant events occurred.  Jeanne believes that it will help people to connect with her energies by having the opportunity to actually see where some of these things happened.  Also, we have included a few images from more modern times which we feel are significant.  Enjoy!

Image of Notre-Dame de Reims in the present day:  Site of Reims Cathedral where Jeanne d’Arc
saw the Dauphin Charles crowned King Charles VII of France.

After Henry V, King of England, defeated Charles VI‘s army at Agincourt, Reims along with most of northern France fell to the English. The English would hold Reims and the Cathedral until 1429 when it was liberated by Joan of Arc which allowed
the Dauphin Charles to be crowned king on 17 July 1429.

During the First World War, German shellfire during the opening engagements on 20 September 1914 burned, damaged and destroyed important parts of the cathedral.  Restoration work began in 1919, under the direction of architect Henri Deneux, a native of Reims; the cathedral was fully reopened in 1938.

This bell is located in the Cathedral of the fortress town of Orleans, France.  The surrounding area was the scene of Jeanne’s first, and perhaps most dramatic, victory.  This battle succeeded in freeing Orleans and nearby areas from English control.  It also shifted the momentum of the war to the side of the French army, which was under the command of Jeanne d’Arc.

A translation might read:  “The King of Heaven appoints (sends) Jeanne d’Arc (for this mission).”
