She was wearing a contemporary dress and many beautiful pieces of Indian Jewelry. Pocahantas's father Powhatan was an absolute ruler over some 300 villages and had 100 wives and one child by each. Polygamy was his law if the man could afford them. Pocahantas was one of these but the identity of her mother has not been established. She was either 10 or 11 years old at the time she held Captain John Smith's head in her arms comfort- ing him following an ammunition explosion which injured his leg. Their relationship was that of a savior and saved. She was kid- napped by the Colonists in Jamestown, but was treated well. There she met John Rolfe who was 10 or 11 years older. The Colonial Governor gave John and Pocohantas permission to wed. They were married in a small vine covered church in the colony. Her dress was made in England and the pearls she wore were a gift of her father. The newly weds lived in a house in Henrico County and a year later Pocahantas gave birth to a son, Thomas. John, Pocahan- tas and Thomas went to England along with ten Indians. She was treated as royalty and received in Court. They started home on the ship "George" but she became ill and later died in England where she is buried. John had two more wives and Thomas Rolfe came to the colony and helped the Colo- nists. Two women were respon- sible for changing the lives of all of us - they were Queen Isabella and Pocahantas.
