On today's date in 1617 she died in England at the age of (about) 22. At the age of
19 she had converted to Christianity and married John Rolfe in
England. Her name had been changed to Rebecca at that time.

But did you know...

At the time she saved John Smith (a legend apparently started by John Smith) and had
the love affair (as in the Disney movie) she would have been about 12 years old, a fact
that Disney conveniently changed...

And the villain from the Disney movie, Sir John Ratliffe?
In real life he was nailed to a tree and skinned alive...
