Royal lodgings

Royal lodgings


This is the only dwelling remaining in the castle of Chinon. On the 7th of March 1429, Joan or Arc was presented to King Charles VII in this building. She recognized him, although he was hiding in a crowd of courtesans. She then said to him: "Very illustrious Lord Dauphin, I am come, being sent on the part of God, to give succour to the kingdom and to you". And so she did, helping to liberate some of the cities held by the british toops.
