Despite this it has captured the imagination of many famous people including Emperor Charles V, Napoleon III, Mexican President Porfirio Diaz, Italian King Victor Emmanuel III and assorted pirates, cast-aways, adventurers, scientists and sailors. Here is told the entire and fascinating history of this strange coral atoll.
