There is no known contemporary portrait of Louis de Buade, Count Frontenac (1622-1698). This statue of the celebrated governor general of New France (1672-1682, 1689-1698) is from the façade of the Hôtel du Parlement in Quebec City, designed by Eugène-Étienne Taché (1836-1912). It is seen here in an early-20th century engraving.
