Here’s a painting that I came across: click on the link if it doesn’t appear after the text

In 1616, Pocahontas and her husband, Jamestown colonist John Rolfe, visited England as part of a Virginia Company effort to raise funds to enlarge its colonies in North America. Pocahontas, daughter of the American Indian chief Powhatan, caused a sensation among Britain’s high society, none of whom had ever seen an American Indian before. This 1907 painting shows Pocahontas meeting with King James I. On the return trip, Pocahontas fell ill and died, probably as a result of a European disease from which she had no immunity.
