Oharu of Jakarta
Oharu was born and raised in Nagasaki, but was exiled to Batavia in 1639 along with all other people of mixed-race and their Japanese parents. She was 15 at the time. In Batavia, she married the Dutch East India Company man Simon Simonsen, with whom she eventually had four sons and three daughters. Oharu continued to live in Batavia after her husband's death, until her death at age 73.
