Saint Joan of Arc lived in the 1400's during the Hundred Years' War. As a young girl—from 17–19 years-old—she played a major part in the war between two warring French factions (Armagnac and Burgundian). She regularly saw visions of St. Michael (who was accompanied by other angels), St. Margaret, St. Catherine, and others. She was burned at the stake at the age of 19 by the Burgundian faction for wearing men's armor and was accused of being a heretic. She was acquitted Pope Callixtus III after her death of any wrong doing, and shortly thereafter canonized as a saint by Pope Benedict XIV.
