Unfortunately, neither Parkman nor Lorin examined the evidence very critically. Frontenac was a prolific and gifted writer; he sent very lengthy accounts of all that happened in New France to his wife for circulation in court circles. These annual journals, running to 90 pages, were skilfully contrived to make everything redound to the greater glory of Frontenac; every success, no matter how ephemeral, was extolled, and every setback was plausibly explained away or at least minimized. But to accept his account of events uncritically ensured a colourful narrative particularly pleasing to the romantic historians – and reading public – who subscribed to the “great man” concept of history. When, however, Frontenac’s accounts are closely checked against all the available evidence from other sources, the discrepancies, the subtle half-truths, the calculated omissions and the distortions are very apparent." 
Louis de Buade, Comte de Frontenac et de Palluau was the Governor General of New France from 1672 to 1682 and from 1689 to his death in 1698. 
Louis is the son of Henri de Buade, colonel in the regiment of Navarre, and Anne Phélypeaux.
The governor's home, Château Frontenac, is now a grand hotel in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, which is operated as Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, and is a National Historic Site of Canada.
