When John Smith meets Pocahontas in the Disney version of the early American story, it’s portrayed as a beautiful love story. However, there are quite a few mistakes that affect the whole retelling. For example, in real life, Pocahontas was only about 10 years old when she met John Smith.
There was never a whirlwind romance between the colonist and free-spirited Native American, though she did marry a colonist named John Rolfe. But that wasn’t a romantic affair, either. She was actually kidnapped and brought back to live with Rolfe, who changed her name to Rebecca.
