The Filles du Roi were over 700 pioneer women who emigrated from France to Quebec in the middle of the 17th century. They were called the King’s Daughters because the King of France (Louis XIV) had underwritten their expenses to voyage to La Nouvelle France (New France). In fact, each Fille received not only her passage, but also a hope chest as well as room and board until her marriage. If interested you can read further at The Canadian Encyclopedia,

Of course, these were only some of the many thousands of French Canadian pioneer women who eventually settled in New France and who first arrived either alone, or with their husbands or with their parents and it also doesn’t include all of the Filles du Roi. The list includes only those Filles du Roi  who appear on this site because they’re part of my family tree or personal research I’ve done for other people.
