It is situated on the Saint Lawrence River, at the mouth of the Sainte-Anne River. The town's name comes from Donnacona, a Huron chief who was befriended by explorer Jacques Cartier in 1535. History [ edit ] The first settlers arrived in 1670 and were led by Pierre Boucher de Grosbois. In 1713, it became part of New France. It was named after Chief Donnacona (also known as "Atironta"), an Iroquois leader who had been taken prisoner during a battle against Samuel de Champlain near Tadoussac in 1535; he later converted to Catholicism and died among French colonists at Quebec City around 1603 or 1608. In 1845 it separated from L'Islet County to form Portneuf County.
