    Her Legacy
    Elizabeth Bathory's case has inspired many stories of the 18th and 19th centuries. The idea that she bathed and drank the blood of her victims has played a common role in all works. Elizabeth continues to be shown today in history through music, film, plays and books as her character still serves as an inspiration and influence to artists. The crimes she committed and murders carried out to over 650 young woman and girls will always be remembered. Their family and friends will never forget and neither will history.

    1560: Born 7th August in Hungary.

    Primary Sources
    Due to the era of which Elizabeth Bathory lived, the 16th century, there are very few primary sources available on her. From my findings, there are no official records, paintings, or quotes from or about her from the time. The one and only, original painting of her was lost some time in the 1900s and has not been recovered.

    The campaign for Charles VII’s coronation in Rheims, the official site of French coronations and deep in Burgundian land. This journey was successful and also resulted in the surrender of Burgundian and English controlled towns like the city of Troyes. With Charles VII as King of France, Charles makes a 4 month truce between Armagnac and Burgundian factions.This truce is corrupted when Joan and her army attempt to bring Paris back under Armagnac control. This battle was unsuccessful.
    After spending time on Royal estates for a couple of months, Joan accompanied a small army to Compiegne and tried to capture the bridge of Pont-l’Eveque c. May 16 in order to sever the Burgundy’s supplies. This attack failed and once the Burgundian army laid siege on Compeigne itself, Joan made a fateful decision to join the army in trying to revive it after having predicted her capture. She was forced into captivity during this fight by a surprise attack from the Burgundians and was spent the next four months as a prisoner in the chateau of Beaurevoir.

    Eventually after scandal of her attire and her claims she had nearly been raped, in her trial in May 1431 she was condemned to death for heresy. Joan burned at the stake with a crucifix to be held before her on May 29, 1431.
    The Hundred Year War raged on and in 1452, Charles VII requested there to be an investigation into Joan’s trail. Jean Brehal, Inquisitor General, investigated whether the trial condemnation and it’s verdict were handled according to the canon law. Testimonies on 115 witnesses were analyzed and eventually in July 7 1456, Joan was declared innocent by the appellate court.

    Background
    ...
    Joan started hearing “voices” in 1424. She said that they were messages from God, specifically from St Michael the Archangel, Saint Margret and Saint Catherine. The Voices told her to recover her country from the English invasion at Orléans and to lead the Dauphin (heir to the throne), Charles VII to his coronation in Rheims.
    In answer to her calling, Joan left home at sixteen and headed to Voucouleuers to see Lord Robert de Baudrcourt, who, after much persuasion, allowed Joan to travel to Chinon to see Charles VII. Charles, after listening to her case, was encouraged by her words, and after having her examined by the church, allowed her to accompany an army to Orléans.

    In the aftermath of this victory, Joan and her army recovered the Jargeau, Meung-sur-Loire and Beugency, which would later help make the Dauphins journey to Rheims for his coronation. The next day witnessed a larger victory with the English loosing over half their land in Patay on June 18.

    Joan’s trial was finally set up, but, every authority figure in her trial was most likely bribed or threatened to make Joan appear worse than she was. The trail consisted of a long series of allegations including witchcraft, putting an illegitimate heir on the throne of France, heresy and other bias concepts.

    The second day of June, 1429, the said Lord King having learned of the feats of valor of Joan the Maid and of the victories obtained by the gift of God and the intervention of her Council, gave, being in the city of Chinon, armorial bearings to the said Maid, to decorate her standard and herself, of the pattern which follows: (See drawing in document above) Giving charge to the Duke of Alencon and the said Maid of the siege of Jargeau.
