Jacques Cartier

He had one more voyage and his accomplishment was finding a river witch he then gave to France. Then the french were able to enter and build a vast colony in north Americas because of this.

Then a harsh winter hit making the river in passible and making the Iroquois very angry so Jacques waited until spring when the river was free of ice and captured two of Iroquois chiefs before returning to France.

He was born in Saint Malo France December 31, 1491. During his early life he reportedly explored the Americas , specificly Brazil.
