The age of castles and conquest, monks and mystery comes to life as William the Conqueror rushes to Hastings, ready to reclaim his crown from Harold and the Saxons. The Normans are victorious in this famous battle of 1066 wearing chain mail and carrying kite-shaped shields. Hundreds of years later, a young girl clad in armor and flying her own standard courageously leads an army to take back France for the king. Joan of Arc is later captured, is sold to England, and loses her life as the result of an unfair trial.
