Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 48

Has she not herself led the King
to his annointing and coronation.
No greater deed ever occured in Acre
considering all of the opposition.
Yet, despite all who denied Charles
and all the resistance they could bring,
he was noble received and annointed,
and there he heard mass as King.

Original in French

N'a el le roy mené au sacre,
Que tousjours tenoit par la main?
Plus grant chose oncques devant Acre
Ne fu faite; car pour certain
Des contrediz y ot tout plain.
Mais, maulgré tous, à grant noblesse
Y fu receu, et tout à plain
Sacré, et là ouÿ la messe.1
