The three children wereLucia Santosand her cousinsJacinta and Francisco Marto.
The title ofOur Lady of the Rosaryis also sometimes used to refer to the same apparition (although it was first used in 1208 for the reputed apparition in the church ofProuille), because the children related that the apparition called herself the "Lady of the Rosary". It is also common to see a combination of these titles, i.e.Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima(Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima).
The events at Fatima gained particular fame due to their elements of keptsecrets,prophecyandeschatology, particularly with regards toWorld War IIand possible world wars in the future.
