some sort of treasure. During April 1534 Cartier went sailing with 100 men and 2 ships. After that he sailed south and claimed the Gaspe Peninsula for his
country,France. Cartier sailed back to France in the late 1534. King Francis asked him to go on another expedition in 1535.On this mission,he went and traveled

with 10 natives but 9 of them died while sailing. Cartier sailed back to France in 1542 and lived there until his death.
