What we know about the exploits of Blackbeard, the ill-famed pirate, is a mix of history, legend and fiction.
Edward Teach, this should be his real name, boarded and plundered an enormous number of ships, what brought him the fame of ‘Terror of the Seas’, although this adventurous life of his lasted only twenty months.
He was such a terrifying personage, that his victims were paralyzed and surrendered just by seeing him.
