Intendant of New France, 1675-1682. His
commission invested him with the title of president of the Sovereign
Council, an office which had hitherto been filled by the governor. As
Frontenac, a man of dominant spirit, was then governor, interminable
disputes arose between him and the intendant touching questions of
precedence. Frontenac lost no opportunity of showing his resentment; and
the intendant sided with the bishop in the vexed question of selling
brandy to the Indians. Finally the quarrel came to the ears of the king,
and both governor and intendant were recalled. =Index=: (Bishop Laval era) Appointed
