    You managed to combine racism and sexism in one sentence. Nice one.

    I could have sworn Teach was the best pirate. Guess you learn something new every day.

    I knew of her.
    I just don't think she still constitutes as a pirate, however. She seems more like a self-made Emperor. War-chief, maybe.

    Tumblr and Wikipedia don't say how much of her fleet she build from scratch and how much she inherited from her husband either.

    Well; I know about all sorts of people that may or may not have even existed...
    The fact that I know about someone doesn't make that someone real... :P

    I didn't realize bullying innocents into paying protection money and murder were signs of greatness.

    So he didn't get killed, just his ass? Very unfortunate he died to the wounds from his dead ass.

    For a prostitute I can't believe that she was feared enough for the Chinese to call the British and Dutch to help them take her out.

    If we measure success as we do in the case of this Lady she is hands down beaten by Francis Drake.

    Many people tend to not really consider him a pirate as he was also an explorer, admiral and politician, but the man made his fortunes by ranksacking and traumatizing the Spanish Empire.

    Altought if you ask the Spanish they will tell you that in their humble opinion Drake was a lowlife pirate.

    I don't see why you should take the child from the woman unless she abuses it.

    White beard was the greatest pirate of his time. Strawhat Luffy will be the greatest pirate of his time.

    I c wut u did thar.

    OT: Bitches be cray! Naw but she sounds like a hell of a pirate. And the fact that she's kind of hot in that picture makes it even better. Don't judge me and my fantasies.

    A life of crime and being a pirate, being such a pain in the ass to the super powers at the time that they let you leave and live in peace. A hell of a life.

    Sure she was a great pirate/warlord and was able to quit in time something most fail to do, but the greatest?
