Genealogy of the French in North America

Royal Descendants in Québec and Acadia (statistics about descendants)

This table is a list of immigrants having a king among their ancestors. This list is mostly about immigrants coming from France and who spent at least one winter in North America. or that settled (during at least one year) in a former French colony of the North American continent. This list is not limited to the province of Québec but to the diocese of Québec as defined in the 1750s (i.e. Acadia and Louisiana are included).  Also, if a royal immigrant arrived with siblings or children, they are also included.

General Statistics

In the whole population of the province of Québec (computed from 100 couples married in 1939 and 1940), about 84% would have at least one Royal line in their ancestry. Moreover, about 96% of the Quebecers with old French roots have some Royal blood that can be found with a paper trail. Denis Beauregard can perform the relevant research for a fee.

Valid lines with or without descendants in North America (

The next lines are proven or likely correct until proven wrong, this after the case was studied.

Notes : even if I tried to link all immigrants to their family sheet, not all lines are shown there. Moreover, in many cases, it is not easy to find the shorter line to royalty. This will be improved later. Linking to parents or family sheet is automatic.


Background colors mean:

  • Green: indicates there are descendants after 1899 in the database.
  • Blue: indicates there is no descendant after 1899 in the database but living descendants may exist

Notes :

  • The column "Descendants" indicates the marriages in the complete database, where some genealogies are private.
  • 11/2032 means 11 generations and 2032 marriages of descendants in the database (duplicates not filtered).
  • () indicates the most recent marriage in the database.
  • [] indicates the most recent marriage in completely male or female line in the database (for DNA analysis)
  • The column "Estimated Living Descendants in Quebec" is based on 100 genealogies from couples married in the province of Québec in 1939 and 1940.

Evidences and main sources are now in a separate document.

Cases rejected at this time

Evidence to royalty is not complete or not yet published, the cases are not proven or likely fictive or bogus. A line must be continuous to a king (only one generation can be skipped).
