Europe 1 Studio SEASON 2021 - 202207h00, October 14, 2021

On the occasion of the release of the film "The Last Duel" by Ridley Scott, Wednesday October 13, Clémentine Portier-Kaltenbach continues her analysis of the place of women in the Middle Ages. Although they live largely under male domination, medieval chronicles mention women knights: “knights”. In this new episode of the Europe 1 Studio podcast "At the heart of History", discover the portraits of these warriors, the most famous of which is of course Joan of Arc. 

In medieval times, ladies could only get involved in military affairs in cases of extreme urgency or necessity.

Yet some have put on the armor.

In this new episode of the Europe 1 Studio podcast "At the heart of History", Clémentine Portier Kaltenbach continues her story on the place of women in the Middle Ages and paints the portrait of the mythical Joan of Arc.
