HISTORY QUESTION #8962

What was the name of the female commander who was burned as a heretic in 1431 and canonized in 1920?

Jeanne D'Arc

Explanation

The French saint Jeanne D'Arc (1412-1431) was a general in the last case of the The Hundred Years' war. She was a very controversial woman because she wore mans clothes in a conservative community. She declared that God had ordered her to be like a man and she cut of her hair so she could were her helmet. The church tired to find evidence of her being a heretic and on the 30th of May 1431 she was burned without evidence. In 1920 she was canonized by the Catholic Church.
