I believe that is because she is a descendant (like myself) of one of the “King’s Daughters”... girls and women selected to be sent to New France. The King financially sponsored between 600 and 1000 girls/women - they were of no familial relation to the king himself.
No. The article's wording makes it fairly clear that he meant Hillary was related to Louis X, who ruled centuries before the colonization of New France.
You clearly just don't know what is a “King’s Daughters”.
During 1663-1673, France sent to New France about 800 women to
be married, now known as “King’s Daughters” because the king
was paying for their travel. Some of them were found to have
some Royal ancestry, many many generations back as expected.
Now refering to the chart at
it focusses on Perche, which is an area of France, partly in Normandy.
None of her ancestors in that page are royal.
So I verified all her Quebec ancestry based on that page, that is from
- Simon Campeau and Véronique Bourdeau (GFAN 27267)
- Joseph Godet and Jeanne Pilette (GFAN 112544)
I put my family sheet numbers for reference. But none is royal anyway.
None of the ancestors of Hillary is "royal" according to the various
researches made about Quebec early families.
But there are some “King’s Daughters” (Filles du roi) who have a
documented trail to some king.
- Catherine de Baillon
- Judith Catherine de Belleau (no living descendant)
- Marie Martin
