Synonyms of "Unknown" and their differences

A: They refer to the same idea. It's just they are used in different ways.

Unbeknownst to me, she already had a boyfriend. = It was unknown to me that she already had a boyfriend. = I didn't know she already had a boyfriend.

The first and third ones sounds more fluid and natural I would say.

Unbeknownst is always go to be followed by "to + someone or some people", then a phrase of some sort. It always relates the idea that there was something we didn't know that we then found out.

Unknown is a more general term and can mean the same thing ("This is unknown territory"), plus is used in many other situations.
Uncharted can also be used as a metaphor when you aren't talking about a literal map. "We are entering an uncharted part of the human mind", "This book takes us into uncharted levels of terror." It means no one has explored and written about this before.
