Isn't she the one who

Isn't she the one who claimed she was chosen by god to lead armies, got lucky in a battle and was burned at the stake by others who claimed to be chosen by god  (but had political motivations)? Then wasn't that conviction overturned by another person who claimed to be chosen by God (but had political motivations as well)?

To my knowledge, Joan of Arc

To my knowledge, Joan of Arc had skill with tactics, which did make her good in battle, she was the one that claimed to be chosen by God, and she was burned at the stake, I believe, for witchcraft.

I'll have to do more research. Nothing I've seen has shown her as a skilled tactician.
