Joan of Arc ring returns to France after auction sale | BBC News

A medieval ring said to have belonged to Joan of Arc, the French heroine who fought the English during the 15th Century, has returned to France after nearly 600 years in England.

The ring was bought by the Puy du Fou foundation, which runs a historical theme park in France, at auction in London for $425,000 (£300,000).

Joan gave it to an English cardinal before she was burned at the stake.
