After having their son, Thomas, Pocahontas travelled to England, where she became something of a celebrity.
However, the marriage was a short one, as Pocahontas died of an unknown illness in March 1617, shortly after boarding a ship to return home. Her exact gravesite is unknown, as the church where she was buried was destroyed in 1727.
