Born of an old Picardy house of Scot descent, Sanson was educated by the Jesuits of Amiens. A trained historian, Sanson branched into cartography to better illustrate his tutorial works. Attracting the attention of Cardinal Richelieu, he was soon appointed "Géographe Ordinaire du Roi". He was actually educating Louis XIII of France (and then Louis XIV), in the related matters. He is most well known for his 1654 major atlas "Cartes générales de toutes les parties du monde", with several re-editions (the last one in 1676 was named "Cartes générales de la géographie anciennes et nouvelles").
