Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

First Picture of Joan of Arc

First Known Picture of Joan of Arc
The first surviving picture of Joan of Arc is a sketch by the secretary of the Parliament of Paris, Clement de Fauquembergue, in the margin of the official register he kept for daily events on May 10, 1429, after Paris received word of Joan's great victory at Orleans.
Since de Fauquembergue had never seen Joan he sketched her based on the reports he had received of a young maid leading the French army carrying a sword and a banner which he emphasized in his sketch.
