Quebec City is one of the oldest European cities in North America. In French, the names of provinces are gendered nouns while the names of cities are not, so the city and the province are already distinguished by the presence or absence of a definite article in front of the name: Quebec City is one of the oldest European settlements in North America and the only fortified city north of Mexico whose walls still exist.
While many of the major cities in Latin America date from the sixteenth century, among cities in Canada and the U. Augustine , Santa Fe , Jamestown , and Tadoussac. It is however home to the earliest known French settlement in North America, Fort Charlesbourg-Royal , established in by French explorer Jacques Cartier with some settlers, but abandoned less than a year later in large part due to the hostility of the natives combined with the harsh living conditions during winter.
Quebec was founded by Samuel de Champlain , a French explorer and diplomat, on 3 July ,  and at the site of a long abandoned St. Lawrence Iroquoian settlement called Stadacona. Champlain, also called "The Father of New France ", served as its administrator for the rest of his life. The name "Canada" refers to this settlement.
Although the Acadian settlement at Port-Royal was established three years earlier, Quebec came to be known as the cradle of the Francophone population of North America.

Nearby inhabitants traded their farm surpluses and firewood for imported goods from France at the two city markets. During the American Revolution, revolutionary troops from the southern colonies assaulted the British garrison in an attempt to 'liberate' Quebec City, in a conflict now known as the Battle of Quebec.
The defeat of the revolutionaries from the south put an end to the hopes that the peoples of Quebec would rise and join the American Revolution so that Canada would join the Continental Congress and become part of the original United States of America along with the other British colonies of continental North America. In effect, the outcome of the battle would be the effective split of British North America into two distinct political entities.
