Disney’s Princess, Pocahontas

Pocahontas is the seventh official Disney Princess; but the first princess to be based off an actual, historic person. Pocahontas was a Native American woman known for her association with the colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. She was the daughter of Powhatan, the paramount chief of a network of tributary tribes in the Tsenacommacah, encompassing the Tidewater region of Virginia. She saved the life of Colonist John Smith in 1607, who was being held captive by her tribe, by placing her head upon Smith’s when her father raised his war club to execute him.

The name, Pocahontas, means, “Little Mischief”.
