Ahoy, Mateys! The Golden Age of Pirates mainly falls between the years of 1680-1720. Such notables as Edward Teach a.k.a. Blackbeard, Captain Henry Morgan, and the female pirates Anne Bonney and Mary Reade sailed the Caribbean. There was lots of treasure to be had with gold-laden galleons from the Americas sailing back to England, Spain, and Holland. If hurricanes didn't take the treasure down with the ship, there was always a pirate or two about to help make sure the booty didn't make it back to Europe!
