    • Willow: I'm Joan of Arc. I figured we had a lot in common, being almost burned at the stake and having a close relationship with God.

      Joan of Arc is a patron saint of France and hero of the Hundred Years War. As a teenager she believed that God spoke to her and urged her to save France from English domination. She lead an army that attacked the English and forced them to retreat from Orleans. The English eventually captured her, tried her for heresy and sorcery, and burned her at the stake. In 1920, she was canonized (made a saint) by the Catholic Church.
