Charles de Montmagny
Charles Jacques Huault de Montmagny (c. 1599 – 1654) was governor of New France from 1636 to 1648. He succeeded Champlain, who was Lieutenant General of New France, although treated de facto as if he were governor. He was able to negotiate a peace treaty with the Iroquois at Trois-Rivières in 1645.
He died in the Antilles in 1654.
His name 'Montmagny' roughly translated into the Iroquoian languages as 'Onontio' (Great Mountain), a title which the Iroquois Confederacy used for all subsequent Governors of Quebec.
