BOOK - King's Daughters and Founding Mothers: The Filles du Roi, 1663-1673 (2 Vol. Set)
By Peter J. Gagné
Published by Quintin Publications, Orange Park, 2001-2008

Two Vol. Set... 124.95 (C$)

Volume One

Volume Two
A groundbreaking biographical dictionary of the nearly 800 women and girls sent from France to populate Quebec between 1663 and 1673. The introduction explains the need for the program, compares it to similar initiatives by the British and Spanish, dispels misconceptions about the Filles du Roi and gives a history of the program in Canada.

After defining who can be considered a Fille du Roi, this work presents comprehensive biographies of all the "King's Daughters," including a wealth of information never before available in English. This 2-volume set also includes 20 photographs and reproductions of artwork relating to the Filles du Roi, biographies of 36 women falsely identified as Filles du Roi, a table of all the King's Daughters by year of arrival, an appendix with supporting documentation, a glossary, thematic index and an index of husbands.

What is being said about King's Daughters and Founding Mothers: The Filles du Roi, 1663-1673:
  • "I thought everything possible had already been written about the subject, but I was wrong. [Gagné has] skillfully synthesized disparate sources and added some new insights. Also, [the] style makes reading a joy."
    - Ivan Robinson, President, French-Canadian Genealogical Society of Connecticut

  • "Congratulations on your magnificent volumes. You have done a monumental work."
    - Madeleine Juneau c.n.d., Director of the Maison St-Gabriel museum in Montréal
A must for anyone with French-Canadian ancestry. This set is from the tenth and final printing in 2008.
