Legend or truth, Disney film or recorded history, painting in the US Capitol or stained glass window in an English Church, the story of Pocahontas has always been as mystery to many in America and England. Was she really a Princess? Did she fall in love with the English adventurer, Captain John Smith, and if so, why did she marry someone else? What really happened in Jamestown, Virginia, in 1614, was she a willing converted to Christianity or was she forced into faith? Why did Mr and Mrs Rolfe come to England with their young son, only for Mrs Rolfe to die and be buried in Gravesend?
