New: Historial Jeanne d’Arc, Rouen rouen fr

Rouen honours the martyr Joan of Arc with this important new
state-of-the-art museum
.

The setting is appropriate, given that the Salle de
l’Officialité was where Joan was tried in 1431, when the English ruled
Normandy, although it was French clergymen who condemned the Maid of Orleans to
death.

The same chamber witnessed her posthumous rehabilitation at a second
trial, held in 1456, when the French authorities were firmly back in control of
Normandy.

Opened since March 2015.
