Pirates in the Golden Age of Piracy

Charles Vane
One of the most skillful pirate captains, with excellent navigational and ship combat skills. He captured ship after ship, building a pirate armada and renaming each ship “The Ranger”. He is also infinfamously known for refusing the King’s Pardon and instead firing his cannons at the ship of Gouernor Woodes Rogers in the Bahamas. Vane met Blackbeard in 1718 and the two pirate crews held a week-long party at what was the largest pirate gathering ever to occur in North American waters.

Samuel Bellamy
Operating for just one year from 1716 to 1717, Black Sam Bellamy became the wealthiest pirate ever. He captured 53 ships and plundered $140 million worth of treasure, which he divided generously among his crew. Bellamy’s pirates called him “The Robin Hood of the Seas”. The wreckage of his ship “Whydah”, along with valuables stolen from other 53 ships were discovered in 1982 off the coast of Cape Cod, Mass.

Woodes Rogers
As the first Royal Governor of the Bahamas, which in 1718 was home to around 2000 pirates, Rogers’ main task was to get rid of them. He granted the King’s Pardon to all the pirates who would immediately stop their activities, yet there were a few, like Charles Vane, who never accepted it. Rogers even recruited ex-pirates, like Benjamin Hornigold, to use their insights and intelligence to chase down the stubborn ones.
