The article is assigned to the analysis of Christine de Pisan’s last poetry "Le Ditié de Jehanne d'Arc" and the assessment in the historiography. Christine's poem was written in favor of Joan, but unlike all the documents and texts that precede it, the "Ditié" was not written in land under Charles VII's dominion, but in Anglo-Burgundian or "enemy" territory. "Ditié" initiated a significant departure from previous works, as well as a departure from all of Christina's previous ideas about the role of women in war and peace. Jeanne's advantages and merits are so obvious to Christinе that they do not require constant attention. she deliberately ignores her heroine for long periods of the poem. This neglect of the Pucelle sometimes becomes the inverse mechanism of praise in "Ditié". The science interpretations of the writer’s small text differ significantly. The authors agree the point of view, that Christine's poem is a series of evidence to ensure that God sent Jeanne to renew France. According to the authors, Christina's political epistemology is permeated with theology and based on Christian values. We can agree with the assertion that in Christine’s poem ,Jeanne is an instrument of divine providence, with the help of which the power of the king is established by God's grace and the world returns. All her hopes are connected with the image of an ideal monarch who will be the guarantor of fair government. Christinе's hierarchical pattern – the triad: the God-King-Jeanne – is the evidence of a Miracle, divine intervention, which, according to the poet's prophecy, will bring peace and tranquility to the kingdom. King Charles VII and the events surrounding his coronation and triumphant return to the capital are the most important moment in the realization of the hopes of the woman and writer Christinе de Pisan. The article analyzes the autobiographical, historical, political, feminist, military, theological, prophetic aspects of Christina's latest work in historiography.
