Plunder the depths of history to find the treasure hidden in the story of the real Blackbeard.
Much of his early life remains shrouded in mystery, Blackbeard most likely began as Edward Teach in the sailing port of Bristol, England. He set sail as a hired British sailor during Queen Anne's War and eventually settled in the Bahamas under Captain Benjamin Honrigold. From there he learned the way of the pirate and eventually commanded his own fleet. He focused his efforts on stealing ships around the Caribbean and up and down the Eastern seaboard. His thick black beard and fearsome reputation influenced pirate legend and lore for over 300 years.
