    Joan of Arc was viewed naked in her cell beneath Rouen Castle by the English lords who raped her and left her only men's clothes to put on, then burned alive for putting on men's clothes in the Rouen Castle courtyard, if you want to call that a "treat". That is how the English "treated" her. More a "trick" than a "treat".

    Just as Greta Thunberg has asperges's syndrome , by studying Joan of Arc, she has Schizophrenia. But the rediculas thing is, the stupid population listen and follow their voice, which comes from voices in their heads. Cccrazy ! But f the crazies want to follow these schizophrenics then OK, but a bit like the myth, like following the Lemmings over the cliff, great but I have no need to follow nutters ?

      So what 'study' leads you to think you can diagnose schizophrenia in someone who lived centuries ago and in a different country? and in what sense is anyone asking you to follow Joan of Arc.
      Plus you can't spell 'ridiculous' and you haven't actually answere the question.

    The English burned her alive. So one would think they were not fond of her.

    She was called 'the Armagnac whore' - the English bought her from her Burgundian captors, and proceeded to find her guilty on various charges including heresy. She was badly treated in prison - one visitor found her sobbing and hysterical because she was afraid of being raped (she should, under the law at the time, been held in an ecclesiasticl prison, with women guards), and her trial was so biased that the evidence was later used to justify her canonisation.

    She was not given the mercy of being strangled before the fire was lit, and once she was dead they raked away the ashes to expose the poor half burned body naked to the crowd...

    On the plus side, an English soldier made a rough cross from two pieces of wood and gave to her to hold while she burned, but on the whole you could say that she wasn't treated very well.

    She was seen as eminently bankable, a bit like that Greta climate kid. So we sold her back to some French, who burned her.

      Unless you're a Burgundian, of course. But even so she was still sold to the English.

    She was burned alive, I guess you could assume it was pretty bad:
