Sassacus

 1560 – June 1637, born near present-day Groton, Connecticut was a Grand Sachem of the Pequots.
Sassacus and the Pequot were defeated by the English along with their Narragansett and Mohegan allies in the Pequot War.
Sassacus fled to what he thought was safety among the Iroquois Mohawk in present-day New York, where he was betrayed and murdered.
