Marguerite de La Rocque de Roberval (fl 1536~1542) was a French noblewoman who spent some years marooned on the Île des Démons in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, off the coast of Quebec. She became well-known after her subsequent rescue and return to France; her story was recounted in the Heptameron by Queen Marguerite of Navarre, and in later histories by François de Belleforest and André Thévet.
