Thar's yer Pirate Treasure!
Ahoy! Did you know one of the most legendary pirates in history was a woman? In the early 1800s, Ching Shih DOMINATED the China Sea at the helm of the marauding Red Flag fleet. She personally commanded over 400 ships manned by about 30,000 pirates, and eventually had control of over 1,500 ships, totaling 80,000 raiders! She established an iron-clad code of conduct and her inspired fleet was never defeated, even when challenged by the Chinese Imperial Navy, the Portuguese Armada, and the British Royal Navy! If you're not offended by off-color, pirate language, click here for a lively account of her all-around badassedness.
