Joan of Arc, nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans" is a folk heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. She was born a peasant girl in what is now eastern France. Claiming divine guidance, she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII of France. She was captured by the Burgundians, transferred to the English in exchange for money, put on trial by the pro-English Bishop of Beauvais Pierre Cauchon for charges of "insubordination and heterodoxy" and was burned at the stake for heresy when she was 19 years old.

Historical Dreamcast Challenge

Historical Dreamcast Challenge

Here's your challenge: Using the list below, create 34 sets, each with a historical figure and the actor/actress you would cast to play them. When you're finished, put all of the sets into a collection and send me the link.
 
Don't feel that you have to stick to actors who have already played these famous people in the movies or that your sets have to revolve around the time period that person comes from. Aside from capturing the "spirit" of that historical person (some research may be required!), let your imagination soar. You could modernize them, Disney-ify them, put them all in different time periods—it's all up to you!
 
(Original List)
1. Joan of Arc
2. Henry VIII
3. Elizabeth I
4. William Shakespeare
5. Elizabeth/Erzebet Bathory
6. Marie Antoinette
7. Queen Victoria
8. Oscar Wilde
9. Anne Frank
10. Princess Diana
11. Pocahontas
12. Benjamin Franklin
13. Harriet Tubman
14. Charlie Chaplin
15. Amelia Earhart
16. Eleanor Roosevelt

23. Napoleon Bonaparte
24. Alexander the Great
