Jacques Cartier was born on December 23, 1491 and died on September 1, 1557. Jacques Cartier was Saint-Malo France.
Jacques Cartier Sailed Up the St. Lawrence River. When French navigator Jacques Cartier left France by boat in April 1534, the king ordered him to find gold, spices (which were valuable at that time), and a water passage from France to Asia.
Cartier was believed to have traveled to Brazil and Newfoundland.King Francis I commissioned Cartier to lead an expedition to the “northern lands. The purpose of the voyage was to find a northern passage to Asia.
Cartier’s three expeditions along the St. Lawrence River would later enable France to lay claims to the lands that would become Canada.
Although the Iroquois were nice and friendly, Cartier decided to take ten of them, including the village's leader and his two sons. He promised he would return them in a year. Four years passed until Cartier could go back, by then all the Natives except for one girl had died. From then on the Iroquois were being hostile and murdered 35 of Cartier's men.
Jacques Cartier did not find a northern passage to Asia, but he did find what is present day Canada. Cartier also traveled from Brazil to Newfoundland.
