Do you know that We, Zarathustra the Cat, made a crucial impact on the Maid of Orléan’s heroic deeds?
Look at the illustration created in 1506 by the artist Jean Pichore for the manuscript book “Lives of famous women” (“Les Vies des femmes célèbres”) by Antoine Du Four, a writer from Orléans, the place of Jeanne d’Arc’s fame:
Please look attentively what is written on the banner in Jeanne d’Arc’s hand: “Au nom-nom de Chat” (no, it isn’t “au nom de Dieu” like some ignoramuses may think)

Have a look at the commonly known version of the illustration:
No trace of historic truth!
Historians should finally understand that Jeanne d’Arc would not win at Orleans if her cat was not well-fed!
Thus speaks Zarathustra the Cat
