Besieged Fortresses (2020): S01E03 – The Siege of Orleans, Joan of Arc’s Victory


Built at strategic points, and fitted with impressive fortifications, fortresses are thought to be impenetrable.


It is the most striking event in the Hundred Years’ War. Between 1428 and 1429, Orleans was subject to a violent and pitiless siege. Hidden away in the extraordinary walled enclosure, for 7 months, the French resisted an English army that was bent on conquering this strategic city on the Loire River.
