Joan of Arc Wants to Be the Deadliest Warrior

Here she is: Joan of Arc, the first female warrior to appear on Spike's hit series Deadliest Warrior. Set to enter its third season this summer, Deadliest Warrior pits both modern and historical warriors against one another in strategically simulated battles in an effort to definitively answer the question: who is the deadliest warrior? This time around the ladies will have their chance at the title.

Born on May 30, 1431, the "Maid of Orleans" was raised as a peasant girl in eastern France and later claimed divine guidance as she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII. It was during battle that she was captured by the Burgundians, and later sold to the English to be tried in an ecclesiastical court for heresy. She was found guilty and burned at the stake at the young age of 19. Don't let her early death fool you, this girl's a fighter. 

After asserting that she had instructions from God to help her homeland gain its freedom from the powerful English, she was sent to the siege of Orleans by the then-uncrowned King Charles VII.  There she personally helped her dismissive commanders gain the upper hand in only nine days.  In life, she was underappreciated as most true heroes are.  It was only in death that Pope Callixtus III examined her trial, found her innocent, and declared her to be a martyr. She was beatified in 1909 and canonized as a saint in 1920.

This is the first of many great warriors coming your way in the third season of Deadliest Warrior. We'll be updating you and providing the best fans in the world with some more groundbreaking announcements in the weeks and months to come so watch this space and follow us @warrriors_den on Twitter and our fan page on Facebook.
