M6 L4: Samuel de Champlain (post-1610)

Pierre de Gua de Monts was able to raise support from Protestant noblemen and merchants to keep Samuel de Champlain in New France, all while King Henry IV was alive.

When his wife, Marie de Medici became regent for Henry’s son – Louis XIII, she expelled all Protestant nobles from the court, limiting the access to funds.

Champlain marries the daughter of an influential Protestant of the court so that he could continue to have access to funds so that the colony of Quebec could survive.
