Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville

Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville, ca. 1702.
D'Iberville was a soldier from Québec, who led Canadian and Native forces in support of the French assaults on English settlements in the winter of 1696-97. After de Brouillan returned to Plaisance, d'Iberville continued north to burn and loot major English settlements. Only Carbonear Island and Bonavista were spared.
