Domrémy-la-Pucelle
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Country: France
Region: Lorraine
Department: Vosges
Arrondissement: NeufchČteau
Canton: Coussey
Intercommunality: Pays de Jeanne
Elevation: 268 - 407 m (879 - 1,335 feet)
Land area: 8.99 km2 (3.47 square miles)
Population: 155 (2006)

Domrémy-la-Pucelle is a commune in the Vosges department in Lorraine in northeastern France. The village, originally named Domrémy, is the birthplace of Joan of Arc. It has since been renamed Domrémy-la-Pucelle after Joan's nickname, la Pucelle d'Orléans (''the Maid of Orléans'').

Geography

Domrémy is positioned along the upper Meuse valley to the north of Coussey. The village land includes a small wooded hill to the west of the houses, which rises to a height of 407 m, known as the Domrémy Wood. This overlooks the small adjacent settlement of Les Roises.

History

This village was exempted from taxes in 1429 by Charles VII, the French claimant to the throne. Joan of Arc had requested this, as she felt that taxes exploited her villagers. Moreover, Charles wished to do a good deed for her successful efforts in fighting the English during the Hundred Years' War. However after the French Revolution Domrémy was required to pay taxes.
