Pocahontas and Captain John Smith, wood engraving, published in 1876

Pocahontas and Captain John Smith. Pocahontas (born Matoaka, known as Amonute, and later known as Rebecca Rolfe, c. 1596 - 1617), Native American. She was an intermediary between the trunks of the Virginia Algonquian and the English colonists. John Smith, (baptized 1580 - 1631), was an English explorer and early leader of the Jamestown Colony, the first permanent English settlement in North America. In December 1607, Smith was captured by the Virginia Algonquins. According to his supposedly untruthful account, he was saved from execution because the chief's daughter Pocahontas fell in love with him and threw himself in front of him as he stood at the stake. Wood engraving after a drawing by Felix Darley (American illustrator and engraver, 1824 - 1888), published in 1876
