>>549953 Not OP so my knowledge isn't that great. If I remember correctly it was a 18th century Dutch trade ship that had a mutiny of the West coast of Australia and the survivors were split up on different islands and formed little tribes that waged war on each other.
Peter Fitzsimmons an Australian popular history author wrote a book about it popularising the event that was otherwise relatively unknown.
>>550636 Relatively unknown yeah, but I'm not sure Peter Fitzsimmons popularized it that much, it was always background folklore like Alexander Pearce, and there didn't seem to be too much more buzz about the Batavia post-Fitzsimmons.
I think it may be more than just coincidence that the Aboriginal languages of the area have a few words that are suspiciously close to dutch. One that springs to mind is 'wudugaa' for dugong (australian manatee),which is apparently similar to the dutch version of 'water cow'.
Also, a few explorers mention stoone buildings in the area. The wiki page mentions blood types too, but I dont think there are that many Amungu around to confirm or deny that.
>>551390 They only had rafts and the waters are notoriously shark infested. And there's some evidence to point that some survivors did. As referenced by that guy talking about Dutch words used by local abos
>>549953 The most metal shipwreck ever. There was a mutiny and the lunatic in chief decided that he was going to jack the ship that came to rescue them so he could start his own colony on Australia and reign as king.
Jeronimus Cornelisz, who had been left in charge of the survivors, was well aware that if that party ever reached the port of Batavia, Pelsaert would report the impending mutiny, and his position in the planned mutiny might become apparent.[speculation?] Therefore, he made plans to hijack any rescue ship that might return and use the vessel to seek another safe haven. Cornelisz even made far-fetched plans to start a new kingdom, using the gold and silver from the wrecked Batavia. However, to carry out this plan, he first needed to eliminate possible opponents.
Cornelisz's first deliberate act was to have all weapons and food supplies commandeered and placed under his control. He then moved a group of soldiers, led by Wiebbe Hayes, to nearby West Wallabi Island, under the false pretence of searching for water. They were told to light signal fires when they found water and they would then be rescued. Convinced that they would be unsuccessful, he then left them there to die.
With a dedicated band of murderous young men, Cornelisz began to systematically kill anyone he believed would be a problem to his reign of terror, or a burden on their limited resources. The mutineers became intoxicated with killing, and no one could stop them. They needed only the smallest of excuses to drown, bash, strangle or stab to death any of their victims, including women and children
>>549618 That's a good one, but here's an even better story about island "survivors" stuff:
>The British Pacific Island Company acquired the rights to guano deposits in 1906 and built a mining settlement in conjunction with the Mexican government. That same year, a lighthouse was erected under the orders of President Porfirio Díaz. By 1914 around 100 people—men, women, and children—were living there, resupplied every two months by a ship from Acapulco. With the escalation of fighting in the Mexican Revolution, the regular resupply visits ceased and the inhabitants were left to their own devices.
>By 1917 all but one of the male inhabitants had died. Many had perished from scurvy, while others (including Captain Arnaud) died during an attempt to sail after a passing ship to fetch help. Lighthouse keeper Victoriano Álvarez was the last man on the island, together with 15 women and children. Álvarez proclaimed himself "king" and began an orgy of rape and murder, before being killed by Tirza Rendon, who was the recipient of his unwanted attention.
>Almost immediately after Álvarez's death four women and seven children, the last survivors, were picked up by the US Navy gunship Yorktown on 18 July 1917. No more attempts were made to colonize it, though it was briefly occupied during the 1930s and 1940s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clipperton_Island#Guano_mining_and_the_tragedy_of_1917
