Title:
Plan et profil au naturel de la ville d'Orleans
Description:
France and England had a fractured relationship during the Renaissance, as the two sides battled regularly against one another for control of French lands. The town of Orléans, depicted in this view originally from 1648, was the site of a famous siege in 1429. It was here that young Joan of Arc (Joan La Pucelle) rallied the French army behind her, and overtook Orléans from the English. In its villainizing of the French characters and triumph of English heroes, Henry VI, Part I supported a feeling of pride in country and monarch in England under Elizabeth I.
