Joan or Jo-an'na [Fr. JEANNE, zhin ; It Gio-
VANNA, jo-van'na| I., Queen of Naples, a daughter of
Charles, Duke of Calabria, was born in 1327. She was
married to Andrew, Prince of Hungary, and in 1343 suc-
ceeded her grandfather, Kobert, King of Naples. In 1345
Andrew was murdered by conspirators, probably with
the connivance of Joan, who soon after married Prince
Louis of Tarentum. To avenge the death of Andrew,
Louis, King of Hungary, invaded Naples and expelled
Joan from the kingdom. Having gained the favour of the
pope by ceding Avignon to him, she was restored to the
throne in 1352. She was married in 1376 to her fourth
husband, Otho of Brunswick, but continued to be child-
less. In 1381 Naples was invaded by Charles Durazzo,
who captured Joan and put her to death in 1382.

e della seconds Giovanna, Regine di Napoli," 18 *a ; *' Nouvelle Bio-
graphic Generate, " (under "Jeanne.")

Joan (or Giovanna) H., daughter of the Duke of
Durazzo, succeeded her brother Ladislaus on the throne
of Naples in 1414. She was notorious for her licentious
conduct and the number of her favourites. She died iti
1435, leaving the kingdom in a very unsettled state.

Joan, POPE, supposed by most authorities to be a fabu-
lous character, is placed by several writers in the ninth
century. I laving assumed male attire, she went to Rome,
and became so celebrated for her ecclesiastical know-
ledge that upon the death of Leo IV. she was unani-
mously elected pope. She was, however, one day seized
with the pains of childbirth as she was proceeding to the
Lateran Basilica, and died in the street, after a pontificate
of two years, five months, and four days. She was buried
without honours. Other accounts state that upon the
discovery of the imposture she was stoned to death by the
populace. David Blonde], a Protestant historian, was
the first to show this story to be a fiction, although it was
in circulation as early as the thirteenth century.

Joan, Queen of Castile, daughter of Ferdinand and
Isabella the Catholic, was married in 1496 to Philip,
Archduke of Austria. In 1500 she gave birth to Prince
Carlos, afterwards Charles V. of Germany. She soon
after lost her reason ; and when, upon the dearh of Isa-
bella, she became Queen of Castile, it was necessary that
5 r-gent should be appointed. Died in 1555.

(Jeanne,) daughter and heiress of Henry I
of Navarre, and queen of Philippe le Bel of France,
was born in 1272. Upon her marriage with the French
monarch she retained authority over her hereditary do-
minions of Navarre and Champagne. She carried on
a successful war against the Castilians and Aragonese,
assisted her husband in the councils and administration
of affairs in France, established a college in Navarre,
and was a liberal patroness of learning. In 1297, Count
de Bar having invaded Champagne, the queen marched
against him at the head of her troops, cut his army in
pieces, and carried him prisoner to Paris. Died in 1305.

Joan of Arc, or Jeanne Dare, zhin dink, Mir named
THE MAID OF ORLEANS, [Fr. LA PUCELLE D'ORLANS,
M pii'sf 1' doR'li'oN',] the most illustrious of the hero-
ines of history, was born in the hamlet of Dom-Remy,
in Lorraine, about 1411. She was the daughter of
poor and religious peasants, who implanted in her heart
at an early age the seeds of that exalted enthusiasm
which subsequently obtained so absolute an ascendency
over her character. At this time the rival factions of
the Orleanists or Armagnacs and the Burgundians deso-
lated France by their wars. The former supported the
claims of Charles VII.; while the latter had sworn al-
legiance to Henry V. of England. Joan from infancy
had imbibed the principles of the Orleanists, by whom
she was surrounded. Her devotion to their cause was
increased by the cruelties which she frequently saw the
enemy commit. She was untiring in her efforts to re-
lieve the sufferings of the poor around her, and even sold
her bed and the greater part of her clothing in order to
procure them supplies. She afterwards stated that as
early as the age of thirteen she received commands from
Heaven to go and liberate France. These commands
continued to be repeated ; but her parents endeavoured
to suppress her enthusiasm. She. however, obtained
the assistance of an uncle, who introduced her to De
Baudricourt, the commander of a neighbouring fortress,
before whom her voices, as she termed them, had or-
dered her to lay her divine commission. That officer at
first treated her assertions with scorn ; but finally, on
account of the disasters that his prince had suffered, he
gave her the assistance which she had requested, and
in February, 1429, with a guard of five or six men, she
set out on her journey for C.hinon, where Charles then
held his court. At this time his cause appeared to be
almost desperate. Orleans, which was the only place of
importance that remained to him, was closely besieged
by the English. Joan appeared before him, and declared
that her mission was to raise the siege and to conduct
him to Rheims to be crowned. At this period she had
reached her eighteenth year, and possessed a very beau-
tiful countenance and noble form. Charles was convinced
of the truthfulness of her statements, and, notwithstand-
ing the opposition of his ecclesiastics and courtiers,
raised her to the rank of a military commander, and
placed a considerable body of troops at her disposal.
She entered Orleans about the last of April, 1429, with
a convoy of provisions, and in one week raised the siege.
In battle Joan displayed great personal bravery. She
subsequently gained the battles of Jargeau and Patay, in
the latter of which the noted Talbot was made prisoner.
Several important cities surrendered to her without resist-
ance ; and in less than three months from the time that she
received her military command, Charles was crowned at
Rheims, in the cathedral consecrated to the coronation of
the French sovereigns. She then petitioned the king that
she might be permitted to return home ; but he prevailed
on her to continue in the army. The following spring, as
she was making a sortie against the Burgundians near
Compiegne, she was captured by them and subsequently
handed over to the English, who, with the Bishop of
Beauvais and the University of Paris, urgently demanded
her execution as a sorceress. The King of England
granted their request, and Joan, after a mock-trial at
Rouen, was condemned to be burnt. On the 3istof
May, 1431, she was dressed in the garb of the victims of
the Inquisition, and, amidst the clamours of assembled
thousands, conducted to the stake, where, in i. short
time, her body was consumed. She died declaring that

her voices had not deceived her, and with the name ol
Jesus on her lips. Many of those who had most eagerly
sought her death were melted to tears ; and even the
executioner declared that he had committed an unpar-
donable sin. A secretary of the King of England also
said, " We are lost ! we have burned a saint." Thus
perished the Maid of Orleans, against whom not the
slightest crime could be proved. If the inspiration which
she received came not from the source to which she
attributed it, it was at least the offspring of bravery, of
generosity, of patriotism, of those virtues which nave
raised to immortality so many of the great and good.
In the high-coloured and eulogistic account given of
her by Michelet, he remarks, "She had the goodness of
the ancient martyrs, but with this difference : the early
Christians remained pure and virtuous only in retiring
from the encounter and in separating themselves from
the struggles and temptations of the world, while she
was benign in the fiercest conflicts, good among the bad,
gentle even in war; 'into war, that triumph of the devil,
she carried the spirit of Heaven.' This tenderness of
heart she had for all men. She wept after the victories,
and relieved the sufferings of the wounded English."
Her death stamped indelible infamy on all the parties
connected with the war, on the Burgundians for de-
livering her to her inveterate enemies, on the English
and their French allies for their inhuman cruelty and
thirst for revenge, and on her own prince and party for
not making a powerful attempt to save her.
