King’s Daughters and Founding Mothers: The Filles du Roi, 1663-1673A groundbreaking biographical dictionary of the nearly 800 women and girls sent from France to populate Québec between 1663 and 1673. The introduction explains the need for the program, compares it to similar initiatives by the English and the 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 biographies of women falsely identified as Filles du Roi, a glossary, a thematic index and an index of husbands.
