SYMHC Classics: Les Filles du Roi

"The Arrival of the French Girls at Quebec" by Charles William Jefferys. Public domain

We're revisiting an episode from 2014: the Filles du Roi, or King's Daughters. While the building of a population in a new colony seems like a tricky endeavor, France's King Louis XIV launched a scheme to do just that by shipping eligible ladies to New France in the 1600s.
