** Even in Shakespeare's time, it was known that charges of heresy and crossdressing pressed against Joan of Arc were a KangarooCourt, and accusations of witchcraft never went to try. In this play, it's suggest she really did make a DealWithTheDevil to aid the French side of the war.

* PerspectiveFlip: By way of PopCulturalOsmosis -- modern viewers (even English-speaking ones) are generally more familiar with the French version of the story of Joan of Arc rather than the English-favoring account which this play presents.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Talbot and Duke Humphrey. Interesting to point out that the only two ReasonableAuthorityFigures in the whole trilogy die early and that the rest suffer from ChronicBackstabbingDisorder

* GreyAndGrayMorality: Neither the French nor the English are cast in a particularly flattering light, and the two armies are shown internally ridiculing each other for the exact same perceived flaws.

* WordOfDante: Most of the rose symbolism related to "The Wars of the Roses" originates from this play (and Henry VII's Tudor rose), not the historical conflict.

* ManipulativeBastard: Half the cast, but Somerset is probably the biggest of all being behind putting Margaret on the throne and removing Humphrey as the power behind the throne. Margaret herself, Somersets ally (and lover), is almost as bad, except that Somerset is behind her machinations...at least, in Part 1.
