Top 10 Famous Pirates in History
Script written by Dan Deeprose
Drink up, me hearties, yoho! Join WatchMojo.com as we count down our picks for the Top 10 Most Famous Pirates in History.
For this list, we’re defining piracy as crimes and violence at sea. However, we will also include some historical figures that were officially privateers —that is, they were exactly the same as pirates, but the government sanctioned their actions, making them legitimate acts of war as opposed to criminal offences. While pirates and privateers were technically different, the line between them was often blurred, and what one country would call an honorable privateer, another would call a bloodthirsty pirate.
