She was captured a year afterward, she was charged with heresy, witchcraft and dressing like a man. After a year in captivity, she was burned to death on May 30, 1431 by the English and their French collaborators. She was hailed as the greatest national heroine of her compatriots, and her achievement was an important factor in the awakening of French national consciousness.

Joan of Arc became more famous when she was dead than when she was alive. She was cleared of all the charges against him after a a new trial ordered by Charles VII twenty years after her execution, and was canonized by Pope Benedict XV in 1920. Joan of Arc was beatified by Pope Pius X in 1909 at the famous Notre Dame cathedral.
