Statue of Joan of Arc in Scotland at Stirling Castle
Description of Jeannie Dark Statue
Jeannie Dark was the local name for the French
warrior saint, Joan of Arc. Scottish troops joined
her army in the campaign against the English to
restore the Dauphin, the future Charles VII, to the
French throne. One of those killed at the Battle of
Verneuil in 1424 was the ancestor of John Erskine,
Earl of Mar, Hereditary Keeper of Stirling Castle.
Erskine included a statue of Joan of Arc on the
frontage of his new Renaissance palace - Mar's
Wark - built around 1570.
