Joan of Arc was an influential and widely celebrated world leader who left a lasting impact in the lives of people all over the world due to her significance in the 100 Years War, sacrifices for the Roman Catholic church as well as the people of France, and her stance for female courage of martyrdom and to pursue a righteous cause.

Medieval Times were covered in deceit and secrecy and one of the main duties of a Queen in the Middle Ages was to help the King and other nobility find ways to spy on rivals, start conflicts or wars or simply spread important gossip through the country. One of the most famous medieval queens was Eleanor of Aquitaine. She was most likely born in the year 1122 as historians do not have the direct date of which she was born.
