About Jean Jacques Blaise

Jean-Jacques Blaise d'Abbadie (1726-February 4, 1765, New Orleans) was the governor of the French colony of Louisiana from 1763 to 1765.

Louis XV continued to direct the affairs in Louisiana because the Treaty of Fontainebleau remained secret and he appointed D'Abbadie to serve as governor. In 1765, the king informed him that Louisiana had become a Spanish province and ordered his return to France. He died shortly afterward in New Orleans on Feb. 4, 1765, before the Spanish occupation forces arrived.
