Pierre Dubois Davaugour
Baron Pierre Dubois Davaugour (before 1620-1664) was the French soldier and Governor of New France from 1661 to 1663.
He was related to the old family who were counts and dukes of Penthièvre in Brittany. Davaugour was a carrier soldier (40 years) in the French Army and died while fighting against Turks in Serinvans-Zrin at a fortress (likely Zrin Castle) on the border with French ally and Habsburg controlled Kingdom of Croatia during the Austro-Turkish War.
