Dictionary Definition: Mercantilism is the theory that the prosperity of a state is dependent upon its supply of capital, which the global volume of international trade is “unchangeable,” and that one party may benefit only at the expense of another
Meaning in English: All of the soil in a country is to be used for agriculture, mining, or manufacturing, nothing should be imported which can be produced domestically, and only finished materials should be exported; no raw materials
Francois de Laval was the first Roman Catholic bishop of New France His power and authority were established with help from King Louis XIV He founded the Seminary of Quebec and the Sovereign Council
The Seminary of Quebec was founded by de Laval. He recruited a bunch of diocesan priests for the training of new priests Diocesan priests are priests that are under the authority of the Bishop
The Sovereign Council was the name for the government of New France It made rules and enacted laws concerning the day-to-day affairs of the colony
The sovereign council of New France consisted of a Governor General, the First Intendant of New France, the Bishop, the Captain of the Militia, and five other councillors
Jean Talon was First Intendant of New France His main job was to help populate New France, which he did very well through various methods Jean Talon brought “les filles du roilles” (the king’s daughters) to New France
He attempted to boost the economy in New France by helping start industries in agriculture, fishing, and lumbering, as well as the traditional fur trade However, most of these failed once he left for France
“Les Filles du Roilles” is French for “the King’s Daughters They were single attractive girls brought to New France in order to intermarry with the men and so boost the population They weren’t literally the king’s daughters
The French government then sponsored them to settle and populate New France. Soon after this 713 daughters were married in New France; mainly to farmers and soldiers
Most of the women were from poor families, it seemed most people moved to the new world to escape their past debts or in hopes of changing their fortune.
Many years later, approximately 300 more woman were sent to the new world They were mainly poor like before but instead of sending city dwelling girls, the government sent more women with agricultural backgrounds.
Marquis de Tracy was a statesman and a military leader He was made lieutenant general of New France, and since the Governor was gone at the time he represented Governor in the Sovereign council
Marquis de Tracy initiated a brutal war against the Iroquois, which the French won In doing this he also destroyed much of their crops and villages
After he was done with the Iroquois, Marquis de Tracy attacked the Mohawk He beat them as well, claimed their lands for France, and forced them to convert and become Roman Catholic
Augustin de Mesy was the first Governor General of New France He was an orthodox Catholic and he was prominent in the affairs of the colony We do not know much about what he did as Governor General
