The Hierarchy Of New France Hierarchy:Any system of persons or things ranked one above another. What Were The Different Levels Of People In The Society Of New France? In the society of New France there were 10 main people in the society. The king was the most important man in New France and the citizens were least important. Even though the king viceroy and ministry didn't live in France they still made very important decision. They stayed in places which needed them more than places that needed them less. They only came back when there was a very important decision to make such as laws or buisness that concerned the French colony. France Had 2 Hierarchy Chains.

Civil Hierarchy: A political system designed to determine someones role in New France and how important they were. Religious Hierarchy: Determines the position of the members of the clergy. The Governor When it came to making laws or doing buisness, the governor was most important. The governor was a symbol of the king.

He established a number of forts along the great lakes and was part of the war between the Iroquois and the English. Intendent Below the Governor was the Intendent who did day to day of goverment work, being intendent meant that he was responsible for finance and justice and seeing that the rules and laws of the council were obeyed. It was the intendent who oversaw activity in the colony, the intendent made sure that the citizens paid their taxes and that the law breakers were punished.
