I'll be at a Renasissance Festival and there be pirates!Big Smile

.....or should I say Tharr be pirates!

Pirates at a Renaissance festival ? Hmmmmmm. Was there a Time Tunnel involved ? Piracy, as we know it, or , the golden age of piracy, was a hundred years (+/-) after the Renaissance.
I could be wrong

KantWait2Crooze, the earliest documented institutional piracy was in 14th century BC. During the renaissance, pirates were often sailors from various naval forces that were disbanded. You are pretty much correct about the so called "Golden Age of Piracy" though.

You are not wrong! The purest hate it, but the public enjoy the Hollywood pirate. So it brings in the $$$ and therefore "tharr be pirates".

We often just have a lot of "privateers"! It is a waste of energy to explain "real" history to most folks.

And it makes a great backdrop to adding in some fresh drama for the regulars.
