1. Battle of Port Royal (1690) - Wikipedia. The Battle of Port Royal (19 May 1690) occurred at Port Royal, the capital of Acadia, during King William's War. A large force of New England provincial militia arrived before Port Royal. The Governor of Acadia Louis-Alexandre des Friches de Menneval had only 70 soldiers... Any resistance therefore appeared useless. Meneval surrendered without resistance not long after the New Englanders arrived.
