Joan the Woman

Joan's career begins when, as a peasant girl, she meets Trent's ancestor, also an English soldier, fighting for the Burgundians. After Trent is captured, Joan is brought to the attention of the beleaguered Dauphin, heir to the French throne, who cannot be crowned because the English hold the royal city of Orleans.

so list, let's see if he

and the Crown of France.

So much the French feared the

English that Eric Trent marched

almost unopposed towards the strongest

fortress outside the walls of Orleans.

Give me soldiers, Lord,

This is black magic, the girl

Interrogad this maid and discover

if it comes from Heaven or Hell!


Are you, Carlos, who proclaims

himself King of France?

Our merciful English

Sovereign, legitimate King of

France, generously offers you

peace, but you will resign

to claim the throne. Else, know that

your head will pay for such madness!

Take this answer to your master.

Tell him if each

sword in France was broken,

if every man in France

I was dead, there is still a God of Justice

that would liberate us of your yoke!

The English army is at

the gates of Orleans!

Men of France, will you

follow me in the battle?

If you do not follow me, will you

follow the Standard of France?

Will the Nobles of

France follow a peasant?

Joan of Arc, I name you Commander

of the Armies of France!

Joan of Arc, I will follow

El Pajarero - The Mad Monk.

Follow that witch, and

The Blessing of the Banner.

The Maid warns you to

abandon Orleans, or there

will be a war like He has

never met in France!

This is the answer for

your impertinent milkmaid!

I knew you needed me,

that's why I came!

The Call to Arms.

Madam, see what the response

of the English has been!
