General Note

  • Explorer Governor of Florida in 1564. Along with 300 colonists, he founded Fort Caroline. He replaced Ribaut as commander of the French in Florida arriving June 25, 1564 with 3 ships containing 300 men and 4 women. The colony built Fort Caroline 5 miles from the mouth of the Saint John's River. After mutiny and shortages of food, Laudonniere was ready to return to France, when rescued and replaced by Ribaut. Ribaut sailed with most of the men to fight Menendez at Saint Augustine while Menendez came overland, attacked the fort, killing 138 and imprisoning 50. 60 escaped and sailed back to France, including Laudonniere, Ribaut's son Jacques and the artist Jacques Le Moyne.
