Joan is referenced here as a Saint whose sainthood took a very long time. But this gentleman is a completely different candidate...his “miracle” is supposedly uniting France and Germany!!! An interesting read. #saintsofallstripes... See MoreSee Less
Right there at the crossroads was where she learned her strategy. Imagine five-year-old little Jonie, filling the cups of those ancient warriors who had LIVED through Agincourt, overhearing them time-and-time-again as they rehashed that battle among themselves, with every "what if" and "shouldawouldacoulda". That's how she came up with her "Ring around the Rosie" strategy that ultimately won the war.
History owes a lot to Jacques d'Arc just for providing the environment that produced Our Heroine. "Happy Father's Day", indeed.
We doubt Joan of Arc had the cute “bob” associated with her in the 20th century, but we can definitely surmise that she had short hair for a time!! No matter what it looked like...she’s remained iconic as a short haired fierce female. So it is that she continues to be referenced in articles about post-pandemic pixie cuts, like this one!!
Louise Brooks, c. 1929
“The actress’s bob was emblematic of the fashionable flapper haircuts of the 1920s and ‘30s, which some historians say were inspired by Joan of Arc.”
