Fort-de-France is the capital of France's Caribbean département d'outre-mer of Martinique. It has a population of about 135,000. It is considered one of the major cities of the Caribbean. The fort was soon destroyed, and rebuilt in 1669, when Louis XIV appointed the Marquees of Baas as governor general.
