"A Fancy Head, called Princess Caraboo of Javasu" by Thomas Barker (1817) at the Holburne Museum, Bath - From the curators' comments: "'Princess Caraboo' was really a cobbler's daughter from Devon called Mary Baker, who arrived one day in the spring of 1817 at Knole Park near Bristol.  By speaking a made-up language and not a word of English, she convinced the lady of the house, Elizabeth Worrall, that she was a lost noblewoman from the East Indies." She was eventually exposed as a fraud.
