Domrémy-la-Pucelle is a village and commune of the Vosges département, in Lorraine, France. Population (1999): 167.
It was the birthplace of Joan of Arc. Initially called Domrémy, the place has been renamed Domrémy-la-Pucelle after Joan's nickname, la pucelle d'Orléans ("the maid of Orléans").
This village was exempted from taxes in 1429 by king Charles VII
. This was done because Joan of Arc asked for it as she felt that taxes exploited her villagers. Moreover, the king wanted to do a good deed for her successful efforts to get rid of the English. However after the French Revolution
Domrémy was required to pay taxes.
