St Joan of Arc is the patroness of strong girls, and soldiers. This lovely St Joan of Arc medal hangs on an 18" solid antiqued brass chain. The medal is 3/4" in diameter and is detailed on the front and back. The back of the medal lists St Joan of Arc's victorious battles.

The St Joan medal is hand cast in solid bronze from an antique piece. I have attached it to a hand assembled necklace chain, which has been oxidized by hand so the patina matches the medal perfectly.

HISTORY of the Saint:
St. Joan of Arc is the patroness of soldiers and of France. She is also a model of courage for young girls.

At a very young age Joan heard voices of the Saints which commanded her to help the King of France regain his throne.

After overcoming much opposition, the seventeen year old girl was given a small army with which she raised the siege of Orleans on May 8, 1429. She then enjoyed a series of spectacular military successes, during which the King was able to enter Rheims and be crowned with her at his side.

Eventually she was captured and tried by an unjust tribunal. When she refused to retract the assertion that it was the Saints of God who had commanded her to do what she had done, she was condemned to death as a heretic, sorceress, and adulteress. She was burned at the stake on May 30, 1431. She was nineteen years old. Some thirty years later, she was exonerated of all guilt and she was ultimately canonized in 1920, making official the sanctity of her life that the people of France had known for centuries. Her feast day is May 30.
