Pirating dates back to the early 1500’s and ended in the 1830’s, however they were the most successful from the 1660’s to the 1730’s. With the exception of the Somali pirates that ar4e still around until this day! I’m sure you have heard of Captain Black Beard, who is easily the most famous pirate to go down in history. You may also know him by the name of Edward Teach. He was a highly feared pirate who at the height of his career commanded 4 ships and had a pirate army of nearly 300! Which I don’t know about you but we think it’s pretty interesting but then again we are wanna-be pirates.
