Edit
Trivia Based on the true story of Mary Willcocks Baker, who appeared in 1817 in Bristol, England, speaking an unknown language and behaving strangely. Through signs and gestures she claimed to be a princess from an island called Javasu, who had been kidnapped by pirates and escaped. For several months, "Princess Caraboo" was a national figure and was welcomed into high society. Her story was revealed as a hoax after a local woman saw her face in the newspaper and recognized her as a former tenant. After being exposed, the real Mary Baker faded into obscurity and died in 1864 at the age of 75. See more »
