The Lieutenant-General of French forces in North America, Alexandre de Prouville de Tracy, arrived in Québec in 1665 as commander of the Carignan-Salières Regiment. Within two years, with troops made up of career soldiers, militiamen and about 100 Huron and Algonquin, he succeeded in making a truce with the principal Iroquois nations, the Onondaga, the Mohawk and the Oneida. For a period of 20 years, New France experienced a certain respite.
