A ring thought to belong to France's most famous historical martyr, Joan of Arc, was unveiled Sunday at a theme park, even as historians remained skeptical about its authenticity.Puy du Fou says the ring was probably enlarged and modified at some point in the last 200 years.Joan of Arc, who fought against the English occupation of France during the Hundred Years War, was burned alive at the stake but became a symbol of French resistance and was later made a saint by the Catholic Church.It is not the first time the ring has supposedly returned to France, said Olivier Bouzy, head of the Joan of Arc archives in Orleans.In the 1950s, a French-English doctor called James Hasson said he had bought the ring and presented it around France.
