Lieutenant Nun: Memoir of a Basque Transvestite in the New World is a memoir by Catalina de Erauso detailing her experiences during the early 1600’s in South America and Spain. She was born in 1585 into a well off Basque family and her parents were native-born residents of San Sebastian Spain. This book is one of the earliest known autobiographies by a woman and details the events that took places when Catalina escaped a Basque convent dressed as a man. During this time she served as soldier in the Spanish army, traveling to Peru and Chile, and even becoming a gambler.

Orlean is a French town along the Loire River. In 1428, the Siege of Orleans took place, which is known as the turning point in the Hundred Years War. English forces had been attempting to seize, or trying to take over towns, in the north eastern part of France, and England had begun to lay siege on Orleans . By February of 1429, Joan of Arc, who had been claimed to have been persuaded by saints, then persuaded Charles VII to take back the city. Joan and the troops entered Orleans through Chezy, five miles upstream, and stormed forts, which eventually caused the English to abandon the siege.
