"In 1632 Canada, having been under English control since 1629, was returned to France by the terms of the treaty of St. Germain- en-Laye. For the next thirty-five years the French were far too occupied, first by the Thirty Years War then by the civil turmoil of the Fronde, to pay much attention to the affairs of a handful of settlers in the New World. The Company of One Hundred Associates had been granted a monopoly on the colony's trade and charged with its administration but it had shown a marked lack of initiative and administrative ability." --
