Elvis Presley collected statues of which famous female?
Joan of Arc
Answer: Elvis Presley collected marble statues of Joan of Arc. The patron saint of France, Joan of Arc inspired a French revolt against the occupation of the English. An unlikely hero, at the age of just 17, Joan of Arc led the French army to victory over the English during the Hundred Years’ War. Captured a year later, Joan was burned at the stake for her crimes against the English. Her trial and martyrdom only heightened her mystique. Joan of Arc has remained a popular figure in literature, painting, and sculpture since the time of her death.
Joan of Arc, nicknamed “The Maid of Orléans”, is considered a heroine of France for her role during the Lancastrian phase of the Hundred Years’ War and was canonized as a Roman Catholic saint.
