Medieval Sourcebook:
Joan of Arc: Letter to the King of England, 1429
——————————————————————————–
Joan, called “the Maid,” a young girl from the town of Domrémy in the French county of
Lorraine, felt herself to be called by God to help the French resist the English in the
Hundred Years War. After convincing the King of France that she was a prophetess sent
by God, she took command of an army and went into battle against the English. She
wrote this letter to the King of England, who was laying siege to the town of Orleans.
Note how she speaks of government in religious terms and how she switches back and
forth between the first person “I” and the third person “she” when she refers to herself.
JESUS, MARY
King of England, render account to the King of Heaven of your royal blood. Return the
keys of all the good cities which you have seized, to the Maid. She is sent by God to
reclaim the royal blood, and is fully prepared to make peace, if you will give her
satisfaction; that is, you must render justice, and pay back all that you have taken.
King of England, if you do not do these things, I am the commander of the military; and
in whatever place I shall find your men in France, I will make them flee the country,
whether they wish to or not; and if they will not obey, the Maid will have them all killed.
She comes sent by the King of Heaven, body for body, to take you out of France, and the
Maid promises and certifies to you that if you do not leave France she and her troops will
raise a mighty outcry as has not been heard in France in a thousand years. And believe
that the King of Heaven has sent her so much power that you will not be able to harm her
or her brave army.
To you, archers, noble companions in arms, and all people who are before Orleans, I say
to you in God’s name, go home to your own country; if you do not do so, beware of the
Maid, and of the damages you will suffer. Do not attempt to remain, for you have no
rights in France from God, the King of Heaven, and the Son of the Virgin Mary. It is
Charles, the rightful heir, to whom God has given France, who will shortly enter Paris in
a grand company. If you do not believe the news written of God and the Maid, then in
whatever place we may find you, we will soon see who has the better right, God or you.
William de la Pole, Count of Suffolk, Sir John Talbot, and Thomas, Lord Scales,
lieutenants of the Duke of Bedford, who calls himself regent of the King of France for the
King of England, make a response, if you wish to make peace over the city of Orleans! If
you do not do so, you will always recall the damages which will attend you.
Duke of Bedford, who call yourself regent of France for the King of England, the Maid
asks you not to make her destroy you. If you do not render her satisfaction, she and the
French will perform the greatest feat ever done in the name of Christianity.
Done on the Tuesday of Holy Week (March 22, 1429). HEAR THE WORDS OF GOD
AND THE MAID.

NOTE ASSIGNMENTS
For your Note Assignments, you will be asked to provide some basic information
about the documents that you have read. There are some basic facts to ascertain
about each of the documents:
1. Who wrote this document, and when and where? Most of these documents you
can easily find out who wrote it, and where and when; it’s usually in the
introduction to the document itself, if there is one.
2. What kind of document is it? Is the document written, or part of a speech? Is it a
letter, a note, a decree, declaration, etc.? How can this (document type) aid your
understanding of it historically?
3. Who is the intended audience for this document? Is the document written to be
widely read, or only by a few people? Is the audience supposed to be similar
people (all the Franks), or different (all Christians)? Is it intended for the rich only
or the poor only, or everyone in between, or some other group altogether?
4. What are the main points of the document? Summarize!
These are the main ideas that you should first discover about the document:
the who, what, where and why questions that will get you started in using this
document as a historical source. Once you have this information (and some of it
may very well be listed for you in the introduction to the particular document),
then you can go on to the more important historical questions:
5. Why was the document written?
Is it supposed to do something specific (free the serfs, declare war, brag,
threaten, make law, etc.), or is it more general (here’s my description of the
Crusades)? Is it to share something (like a discovery), or to teach, or correct an
earlier mistake, or merely record (like a journal)? All these things, plus those
above, should help you to figure out why a document was written. A oneline
answer is not sufficient; Gregory VII wrote to all the German princes in response
to questions from just one of them—there are differences between replying to just
one person and writing an open letter.
6. What can you tell about the society that this document comes from?
This is another area where you’ll have to try to synthesize all of the above
information. The audience for the document is one of the most important things
here; if it is written to only a small segment of the population, that might tell you
something about the society (like only a few people really count). If it is a speech
(or contains a speech), you might think that it reflects the thinking of some of the
leaders of a society, (but make sure that they are not too unusual– Not all leaders
reflect their population’s views; or perhaps it just reflects the views of the author
who included that speech!). Also: be careful! Some of these documents may be
influential without being very popular; they express ideas that just never caught on,
or are pretty far afield for most of society. If all else fails, take a guess at this
society; it’s worth a try. Above all, try to be thoughtful; there are reasons that these
documents were chosen for you. They all tell something about their societies, and
you should try to get as much information as possible from them. As above, a
oneline answer is not sufficient!
