Abstract: This paper discusses the French military administration of the Marquesas from annexation of the group by French naval officers in May 1842 until the replacement of French naval administrators by French civil administrators in
1890. The main thesis is that the French, despite their moderate presence in the Marquesas, exerted a beneficial influence on the people during this period, and they certainly prevented further depopulation by intervening in force in the southeast group in 1880.
