DOMREMY-LA-PUCELLE, a village of eastern France, in the department of Vosges, on the left bank of the Meuse, 7 m.
Domremy was the birthplace of Joan of Arc, and the cottage in which'she was born still stands.
JOAN OF ARC, more properly Jeanneton Darc, afterwards known in France as Jeanne D'Arc 1 (1411-1431), the " Maid of Orleans," was born between 1410 and 1412, the daughter of Jacques Darc, peasant proprietor, of Domremy, a small village in the Vosges, partly in Champagne and partly in Lorraine, and of his wife Isabeau, of the village of Vouthon, who from having made a pilgrimage to Rome had received the usual surname of Romee.
The attempt to establish the reality of the " revelations " and consequently to obtain the canonization of Joan of Arc led the Catholic party in France to publish lives (such as Sepet's, 1869) in support of their claims. Excellent works worth special mention are: Simeon Luce, Jeanne d'Arc a Domremy; L.
