French:
Sous le règne de Louis VIV, en l'année 1691, Frontenac, gouverneur général de la Nouvelle-France fait construire en ce lieu appelé Pointe-aux-Roches un plate-forme qui doit recevoir une batterie de canons nécessaire à la défense de Québec.

En 1763, ne servant plus à des fins militaires, la batterie est transformée en débarcadère. Au XIXᵉ siècle avec l'expansion du port et de la basse-ville, elle disparaît peu à peu sous les constructions et les remblayages successifs. Remise à jour lors de fouilles archéologique, elle est restaurée en 1977.

Le 3 juillet 1978, 370ᵉ anniversaire de la Capitale, en présence du Premier ministre, monsieur René Lévesque, le ministre de la Culture et de la Communication, monsieur Jean-Philippe Lecat, remet, au nom du Gouvernement français, dix pièces d'artillerie de modèle 1733 à la Batterie Royale.
English translation:
Under the reign of Louis XIV in 1691, Frontenac, Governor General of New France, built at this place called Pointe-aux-Roches a platform to receive a battery of guns necessary for the defense of Quebec.

In 1763, no longer used for military purposes, the battery was transformed into a dock. In the 19th Century with the expansion of the port and the lower town, it gradually disappeared under construction and successive backfilling. Uncovered during archaeological excavations, it was restored in 1977.

On 3 July 1978, the 370th anniversary of the capital, in the presence of Prime Minister René Lévesque, the Minister of Culture and Communication Jean-Philippe Lecat, the French Government presented ten pieces of 1733 model artillery for the Royal Battery.
