Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 31

Merlin, the Sibyl and Bede
foresaw her coming 500 years ago,
and told in their writings how
she would end France's woe.
They prophesied about her that
she would carry France's banner in war,
and put an end to all the troubles
describing all she would do long before.

Original in French

Car Merlin et Sebile et Bede,
Plus de Vc ans a la virent
En esperit, et pour remede
En France en leurs escripz la mirent,
Et leur[s] prophecies en firent,
Disans qu'el pourteroit baniere
Es guerres françoises, et dirent
De son fait toute la maniere.1
