Did You Know?
Joan tells an aide "I will have your head" if he fails to inform her of Fastolf's coming (Fastolf was expected to arrive at Orléans with reinforcements for English commanders Earl of Suffolk and Lord Talbot). She, in fact, said to commander Jéan de Dunois, who had decided to leave her out of leadership decisions: "Bastard, Bastard, (Dunois was known as "The Bastard of Orléans" as he was the illegitimate son of Louis I, Duc d'Orléans) in the name of God I command you that as soon as you hear of Fastolf's coming, you will let me know. For if he gets through without my knowing it, I swear to you that I will have your head cut off". Dunois conceded to her, and she successfully lifted the siege. See more
