In Reply to: Saint Dominigue's seat of government? by Sterling of 2225

There was a Governor of the colony whose seat, was, in the latter days of the colony, in Port-au-Prince, also called Port-Republicain during the French revolution years. However all French colonies were administered by the French Navy whose seat was, and is in Paris.
In the begining of French rule, the Saint-Domingue governor was based in Basse-Terre, on Ile de La tortue.
