I'm a student at Davidson College conducting an independent study on Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc). This blog will serve as a chronicle of my research, experiences, and thoughts during the semester.
Why "Jeanne la Pucelle"?
Jeanne's most common name in literature and accounts is clearly "Jeanne d'Arc" or "Joan of Arc." However, I chose "Jeanne la Pucelle" for the title of this blog as that is how Jeanne introduced herself when she went to see the as-yet uncrowned King Charles VII in Chinon. La Pucelle means "the virgin."
