GeographyThe commune is located in the valley of the Meuse at the north of Coussey. The communal territory includes towards the west a wooded eminence culminating to 407 m - the wood of Domrémy - and which dominates Roises, a small meusienne commune.
HistoryIn XVe century, at the time of Jeanne d' Arc, the parish was divided into two parts: one concerned indeed the Comté of Champagne while the other depended on the moving Barrois. Very pious, Jeanne liked to go each Saturday in the church of Bermont, close to Greux, to request.
Domrémy - or at least the part in which the house of Jeanne d' Arc was, namely the northern part of the village - was exempted taxes by Charles VII after his crowning at the time of the ennoblement of Jeanne d' Arc until 1571. The town of Greux could profit from the privilege until 1766 thanks to its membership which remained French, but Domrémy, which was officially attached to Lorraine in 1571, lost the privilege on this date (Lorraine belonged to the Saint Worsens Roman-Germanic, current Germany, but the Duché of Lorraine was attached to the kingdom of France approximately two centuries later under Louis XV). The parish of Domrémy became in 1578 Domrémy-the-Virgin.
