Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 49

In great triumph and splendor
Charles was crowned at Reims as King.
Exactly on the 17th day of July
1429, all the city bells did ring.
Many knights and barons around him
as he underwent his consecration,
there to see him as King and gaze.
And he remained for five full days.

Original in French

Atresgrant triumphe et puissance
Fu Charles couronné à Rains,
L'an mil CCCC, sans doubtance,
[Et XXIX, tout] sauf et sains,
Ou gens d'armes et barons mains,
Droit ou XVIIe jour
De juillet. [Pou plus ou pou mains']
Par là fu V jours à sejour,1
