The matter of Walter Raleigh and "Virginia" is very confusing to people unaware of the historical context. Each American schoolchild is taught that England's first colony in Virginia was Jamestown in 1607, but in the movie Raleigh says he has set up a colony in Virginia in 1585. In fact, the land to which Raleigh applied the name Virginia was what we call North Carolina. After his "Roanoke, Virginia" failed due to the Spanish embargo (resulting in the "Lost Colony" mystery which has inspired many books and movies), the names Virginia and Roanoke were transferred northward to new locations.
