Interesting Facts about the pirates of the Caribbean
Pirates have been noted back in time as far back as the time of Christ. But the ones that capture our imagination more than any other, were the pirates in and around the Caribbean. These pirate were mostly of English, Dutch and French origin, (sometimes Spanish and Portuguese) as most of the region was rules by the Spanish at the time, they often attacked Spanish colonies.
It is noted that the pirates had their own democracy drawn up, which was often fairer than the legal governments that had been put in place by the empires that led them from back in Europe.
The captain and quartermaster were selected by a vote from the crew, the captain being the strongest and bravest; the who could lead them in battle, and the quartermaster had more power when the battles were fought and led their normal lives, and was the one who implemented the laws and handed out the share of the booty to the pirates.
It is said that these pirates preferred to fight with as little casualties as possible, and if the commandeered ship gave in quickly, their lives were spared and led to freedom by their pirate captures.
These Caribbean pirates earned more money than the sailors in the Royal Navy at the time, and would usually receive the equivalent of a years wages for each ship plundered, and was much more lucrative than being a badly treated Royal Navy sailor.
