Did Joan of Arc Die a Virgin?

Evidence seems to suggest that Joan of Arc did die a virgin. Though the answer to this question cannot be a definitive yes, Joan of Arc’s virginity seems to be verified by some key points surrounding her life and sainthood.

She Became France’s National Saint

One of the prerequisites of sainthood is virginity. It took France quite a long time to make Joan of Arc a saint, in part because of the mystery surrounding her virginity. Granted that in modern society, virginity is not viewed with such a close eye as it once was. Virginity, in older times, was of high importance and value, especially in women.
