Hear ye to The Middle Ages
William Conqueror, King John, Joan of Arc
He was nicknamed "Softsword John". Was born December 24, 1166. He was born in England, in the city of Beaumont Palace. He was king of England from 1199 to 1216. He was a very short tempered person, also very greedy. The major battle he was in was the fourth crusade in 1202 where he was invaded. John married Avisa, daughter of William Fitz, the marriage was annulled. King John said "Mad world, mad kings, mad composition." I have no clue what he meant by that! He had to accept the document known as the Magna Carta or the Great Charter, if he didn’t they would kill him. King John was not a great ruler, that’s why nobody liked him. King John died on October 18, 1216.
Joan of Arc

"One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But you sacrifice what you are and to live without belief that is a fate more terrible than dying." said by Joan of Arc. She commanded armies of the nation; she was the youngest person ever to do that. She won victories at Orleans and Paytay, they were the greatest known to history. Joan was a Christian; she believed god spoke to her threw certain visions. She was burned to steak on May 30, 1431 at the age of 19. (1412-1431)
