Sunday Trivia

The answer to yesterday's question is:
116 years, from 1337 to 1453. Joan of Arc fought and died during this war.

Today's question is:
Pamela Sue Martin appeared on the Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries, in the movie The Poseidon Adventure, and which 1980's nighttime soap opera (playing heiress Fallon Carrington Colby)?

Wasn't that Falcon Crest?

"Joan of Arc fought and died during this war," doesn't quite do justice to what happened to her.

She was captured by Burgundian's (allied to the English at this time), and eventually sold to the English. The French King *could* have purchased her himself (paying ransom was customary at the time), but chose not to do so, even though she was fighting in his cause.

The English then burned her as a witch.
