ROLLIN, Ambroise Lucien (rol-lang), West Indian historian, born in Trois Rivieres, Guadeloupe, in 1692; died in Pointe a Pitre in 1749. His family was among the early settlers in Guadeloupe and contributed much to the improvement of the colony. In 1725 he was appointed deputy lieutenant of the king in the colony, which post he retained till his death. Devoting his leisure time to researches upon the Caribes and other Indians, who formerly inhabited the West Indies, he wrote some remarkable works, which are vet considered as authorities. They include " Histoire des lndiens" (2 vols., Paris, 1739); "Les Indiens et la conquete Espagnole" (1740); "Histoire et description des Caraibes, leur condition avant la eonqu0te" (1743) ; " De la civilisation Indienne comparde a leur etat social" (1745)" and "Les incas du Perou et la con-quete Espagnole" (1748).
