Queen Ann’s Revenge – Fear of the Sea

This is a very famous ship, it’s shown today in various movies and TV Shows. This wasn’t an ordinary ship, this ship is a legendary piece of creation and it was a property of one of the most feared pirates of the Golden Age of Piracy, the one, and only Blackbeard.




But before Teach got this ship it was something else, this ship was passed around far too many times until it landed in the hands of a great man. First of all this ship history begins with the English state. It was built in 1710 by the hands of the English. They wanted to use it as a war ship with great speed but it was stolen.

It was stolen by the French right after it was built, it was around the year 1711 when the French caught her and made her into a slave transport ship.

But it wasn’t until Blackbeard got a hold of this ship and turned it into one wrathful war machine that was fast but can also take a good punch.

The ship was powerful on its own but one of the most powerful methods which the ship had was the fear. It sprang fear around people, meaning that you were living peacefully but anytime a pirate ship might start following your ship and you pray that it isn’t Blackbeard’s.
