Is Pocahontas actually a princess? I feel like that’s debatable. She was the daughter of a Native American chief. Technically, I don’t think she’s considered royalty. The real Pocahontas later married John Rolfe, who I’m pretty sure wasn’t even considered nobility. So you can’t even say she married into the title of princess.
Pocahontas was single-handedly responsible for welcoming the British to the new world and taught them how to fish and plant crops so that they wouldn’t starve to death during the winter.
What? That’s not really how it happened?
Well, if Disney can rewrite history, why can’t I? To be fair, it can simply be said that Disney fictionalized a story based on actual historic figures.
Should You Date Her?
Despite her questionable “princess” title. I say yeah.
In 1607, when Jamestown settlers arrived in the New World, the real Pocahontas was only 12 years old. The movie portrays her as much older. So let’s go with the movie version so it isn’t gross.
She’s outdoorsy and can paint with all the colors of the wind. Also, she’s wicked brave. She put her own neck on the line when attempting to save John Smith.
Pocahontas is the kind of girl who is able to respect her family and their traditions, but she’s also not afraid to stand up for something she believes in so she can follow her own path. I respect that.
