Just some Pirate trivier particularly for our Lassies and Wenches (you know which you are rofl)

The most famous woman pirates were:

Anne Bonny (1719-1720) Female Pirate of the Caribbean
Mary Read - Famous English Female Pirate of the Caribbean
Lady Killigrew (1530-1570)
Grace O’Malley - Famous Irish woman pirate who commanded three galleys and 200 men
Mrs. Peter Lambert of Aldeburgh, Suffolk
Jacquotte Delahaye - Female Pirate of the Caribbean
Anne Dieu-le-veut - Female Pirate of the Caribbean
Charlotte de Berry - Woman pirate
Mrs Ching - Chinese wife of a pirate who turned to Piracy after his death
Mary Crickett (or Crichett) was a female pirate who was hung

NOTE

Lady Pirates almost never looked like this. roflol
