Castle of Beaurevoir (XII)
Saint Joan of Arc was held prisoner in the castle of the Burgundian, Jean de Luxembourg, from August to December 1430. When her voices informed her that Compiègne was being threatened by the Anglo-Burgundians she was even more desperate to escape. In one bold attempt, she jumped from her 70-foot (21 m) tower, landing on the soft earth of a dry moat. After she had recovered, she was moved further north to the Burgundian town of Arras.
