The Chevalier De Montmagny PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Chevalier De Montmagny free pdf In The Chevalier de Montmagny, Jean-Claude Dube documents the extraordinary career of Charles Huault de Montmagny, first governor of the colony of New France. Born in Paris in 1601, and educated by the Jesuits, Montmagny studied Law at the Universite d'Orleans, joined the Order of Malta, and enjoyed a colourful career as a Hospitaller privateer in the Mediterranean, before arriving in New France in the spring of 1636. While Montmagny wasted little time in applying the experience he gained fighting the Ottoman Turks to New France's disputes with the Iroquois, he has also been credited with playing a key role in both ensuring the survival of the colony and the entrenchment of a religious elite. His exploits caught the imagination of Cyrano de Bergerac, who later cast Montmagny as a character in his novel L'autre monde. This well-documented study - which in its original French edition was short-listed for the Governor General's Literary Award in 1999 - adds an important dimension to our understanding of the social, religious, and political history of New France.
