Her fame only increased after her death, however, and 20 years later a new trial ordered by Charles VII cleared her name. Other French had refused him alliance and even threatened him, considering him self-serving.
The main sources of information about her were chronicles. They are now in the Museum of Art and History in Chinon. She arrived at Melun in the middle of April, and it was no doubt her presence that prompted the citizens there to declare themselves for Charles VII. The French vanguard attacked a unit of English archers who had been placed to block the road.
As the English rear guard retreated on the run, the main English force, with Fastolf riding ahead to summon the vanguard to their aid, wrongly presumed there had been a rout and panicked as the French charged pell-mell.
The war owes its historical significance to multiple factors. She asked the multitude to pray for her and they did, weeping and on their knees. The French and their Scottish mercenaries, surprised by that maneuver, could not agree upon their next move.

Within five days, she announced, the English would withdraw — then she sent her foes her third and last decree. Fastolf escaped with a small band of soldiers and became the scapegoat for the humiliating English defeat.
This party's opponents sometimes satirize its appropriation of her image. Perhaps he reasoned that the rewards would be great if she was somehow successful, but her loss would be of small concern.The Siege of Orleans began October 12, and ended May 8, when the French relieved the city.
