Filles du Roi: Struggles they Faced
Transcript of Filles du Roi: Struggles they Faced
Les Filles Du roi:
Struggles they faced
Les Filles du Roi
lead terrible lives of separation, broken promises, loneliness, and sadness.
By far, they faced the most struggles in all of New France.
But, only one thing that happened throughout their lives is truly significant.
This one struggle affected the rest of New France, as well as most of the Filles du Roi.
The Filles du Roi were promised many things when they agreed to come to New France:
Many of the Filles du Roi never got even half of what they were promised, or even less,
but they were still expected to help New France and keep populating.
What they got in return for their sacrifice to New France was...
Food and livestock;
Their own family;
New, good-quality clothes;
A good life.
Did this struggle lead up to conflict?
I think that the Filles du Roi's struggles didn't lead up to future conflict in New France.
This is because...
Since they were

there was always some one there to
les Filles du Roi had the worst lives out of all the people of New France.
The Filles du Roi's lives were terrible, full of manipulation, hate and sadness.
But, they stayed strong through their entire lives, despite what was going on around them.
Special thanks to
Filles du Roi
The group of people who made up most
of New France's population; most
farmed for a living, others owned
shops, inns and taverns. Filles du Roi
often married to Habitants. They did hard work all day farming, but were still
expected to clean, care for children, and
cook meals for their family. Their husbands were very hard on them.

-had to adapt to life hunting for weeks a time, no matter what
Coueur de bois were hunters. They learned a lot about how to hunt from the natives and would trade with them to get fur and other natural materials to send back to France and New France. They usually hunted for weeks at a time, and Filles du Roi that married Coeuer de Bois were left at home alone to look after the house and children all by herself. Afterwards, the Coueur de Bois came home hungry and stressed, and took it out by being angry with their wives.
See how many more negatives there are than any other role?
compare & contrast
As you can see, mostly everyone in New France didn't treat the Filles du Roi nicely, and disrespected them entirely. This just made their lives in New France harder.
No one was willing to help the Filles du Roi (who came to New France as poor, sometimes orphaned, girls), so the only interactions between them at all was negative interactions; shouting, insulting, and abuse.
