Their marriage brought a peace between the English colonists and the Powhatans, and in 1615 Pocahontas gave birth to their first child, Thomas. In 1616, the couple sailed to England. The so-called Indian Princess proved popular with the English gentry, and she was presented at the court of King James I. She was renamed Rebecca. Some think she married John Smith,but that is not the case.

  1. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However just imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could definitely be one of the very best in its field. Excellent blog!
