Joan of Arc, her visions and voices got her to lead five thousand men to battle at Orleans. She was FEARLESS they won. She went onto another battle. Captured, then ended up in the hands of the English and was charged with Sorcery (as most strong women were back then) and then was burnt at the stake.
