  • Notes 
    • French governor of New France from 1648 to 1651 and acting governor from 1657 to 1658.

      He was trained as a military engineer. He went to Ville-Marie (now Montréal) in 1643 and played a leading role there; he was an acting governor of Montreal.

      After being named governor in 1648, he tried in vain to prevent the Iroquois from annihilating most of the Hurons, who had allied themselves with the French settlers.

      On 17 May 1657, at Saint-Nazaire, Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve and d?Ailleboust, as well as three Sulpicians (Gabriel Souart, Antoine d'Allet, and Dominique Galinier) under the leadership of Gabriel de Queylus, the first superior of Saint-Sulpice at Montreal, boarded the ship bound for Canada. The travellers, after a stormy crossing, landed on the Île d'Orléans, 29 July. In the middle of August the four Sulpicians, whom the Jesuits had kept as their guests for a few days in their residence, settled down at Ville-Marie.

      Louis d'Ailleboust left no children.
