French:
Entre 1663 et 1973, plus de 770 filles du roy, venues de France, débarquèrent à Québec.
Marguerite Bourgeoys, fondatrice de la Congrégation de Notre-Dame, désigne sous ce nom les jeune filles, bénéficiaires d'une dot royale, qui viennent en Novelle-France pour y «prendre mari ]» et contribuer au peuplement de la colonie.
Elles y sont attendues.
En 1663, li y a plus de 700 hommes célibataires pour 65 filles à marier. En quelques années, la population de la colonie triplera, passant de 3 000 habitants à près de 10 000 habitants.
Cette plaque a été dévoilée à l'occasion des retrouvailles des descendants des filles du roy le 19 juin 1999.
