Edward Teach was a fearsome pirate captain who terrorized the Caribbean Sea in the 18th century. He was known for his brutality and his fearsome appearance, which included a long black beard, a patch over one eye, and a hat adorned with a skull and crossbones. Teach was born in Bristol, England, in 1680. He joined the Royal Navy as a young man, but he deserted after a few years and became a pirate. He quickly rose to prominence, and he soon became one of the most feared pirates in the world. Teach's flagship was the Queen Anne's Revenge, a 40-gun galleon. He used this ship to attack and plunder merchant ships throughout the Caribbean. He was also known for his raids on Spanish settlements in the Caribbean and Central America. In 1718, Teach was killed in a battle with the British Royal Navy. His death marked the end of the Golden Age of Piracy, but his legend has lived on ever since. Teach was a complex and contradictory figure. He was a ruthless pirate, but he was also known for his generosity and his sense of humor. He was also a skilled sailor and a brilliant strategist.
