Filles du roi - Paris

Can anyone give me an idea of the number of filles du roi that came from Paris, who they were, and what happened to them after they landed? Any resource suggestions would also be appreciated!

Re: Filles du roi - Paris

I suggest the book by Yves Landry (in French), "Les Filles du roi au xvii"ème siècles" (1992), published by Leméac. It provides a demographical study, with lost of details of the type you seek. For example, at pp. 54, 56 and 90, it indicates that about 265 were from urban Paris, and another 62 from "rural" Paris (this was in 1663-1673), total 327.
