I agree that she simply could not have been Marinche's daughter because of time, not so much history. But the other part that makes me wonder if she is the Dr's daughter is... her appearance works against her actually. It's difficult to accept her as the Dr's real daughter, and perhaps acceptable that she was someone he took in for Lord knows what reason. And why Ambroious is milking this for all it's worth... who knows?Anastazia a écrit :Laguerra is a reflection of some women who indeed dressed like men and did make their fortunes in the New World, or even some royalty who took the defense of their own country into their hands, some became Sea Dogs. However, as to her upbringing... education back then was not cookie cutter nor clear. She could have indeed received an education from a Convent or a tutor. She could have been of Nobility or simply a Courtesan. Courtesans did indeed learn some swordfighting, too, as well as riding even astride. The courtesan fashion widely varied, too, but did NOT look like a cookie cutter pirate woman like what we see at modern pirate festivals and it's this look she sports that makes her less charming, in my opinion. It seems like a slap in the face to the historical fiction tradition this show has obtained. As to the multiple earrings, it's known that those who sailed had at least a gold earring just in case they perished, then the gold could serve as their payment for a proper burial, whether on land or at sea (in which it was an offering to the sea).
All in all, this is one character who has potential but is spoiled with some idiocies of modern twists. Historical truth is FAR more exciting than what any of us can conjure!
I just hope someone tells her or has told her the truth about what happened to her father.
Very interesting, Anastazia, you are so much right! The first time I saw Isabella Laguerra in her 'pirate oufit', it didn't convince me at all..
