Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 16

For there will be a King of France,
Charles, the son of Charles who will
be king of kings in supreme prominence.
Prophecy foretells his coming calling
him 'The Flying Stag' and he as conqueror
will achieve many a great deed.
(For God has called him to this task)
In the end he will be the emperor, indeed.

Original in French

Car ung roy de France doit estre
Charles, filz de Charles, nommé,
Qui sur tous rois sera grant maistre.
Propheciez l'ont surnommé
"Le Cerf Volant," et consomé
Sera par cellui conquereur
Maint fait (Dieu l'a à ce somé),
Et en fin doit estre empereur.1
