    Jean L'Olonnais
    Jean L'Olonnais was a French buccaneer who was regarded as the cruelest man of his time. L'Olonnais went to the Caribbean in 1650. After three years as an indentured servant, he joined cattle hunters at Hispaniola, and then turned to piracy. He then moved to Tortuga Island and received a ship from the French governor, an adventurer and buccaneer in his own right.

    Over the years, Ching Yih gathered 400 pirate junks and over 70,000 pirates in his confederation. He was blown overboard in a gale in 1807, where he presumably drowned. His wife was slightly more famous than he himself was. She made many very strict laws such as if a pirate pillaged from a village that regularly helped the pirates it was considered a capital offense. She was apparently famous enough to make it into the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

    The Barbarossa Brothers
    {http://piratical2.pbworks.com/f/Barbarossa%20brothers.JPG} The Barbarossa BrothersThe Barbarossa Brothers were the most famous pirates ruling under the Turkish Empire. They were born on an island called Lebos, in Greece, and their father was a retired Turkish soldier, married to a native woman. Aruj Barbarossa was a corsair, captured by the Knights of Rodes, a religious order combining piracy with religious favor. He served as a galley slave until an Egyptian ruler freed him. Aruj sent for his brother, Hizir, and together they proved themselves as worthy captains and became pirates. They sailed around the area of Libya, Algeria, and Italy. They were in a big war with the Spainards. Aruj lost an arm on an attack of a Spanish-held fort. Seeking for revenge, he attacked them two years later, yet failed a second time.They became Spain's worst enemies, stealing from shipping boats and other Spanish pirates. Aruj led an attack on Spain, but he lost and was killed. Hizir, now in charge, allied himself with the Ottoman emperor and sent Ottoman troops to defend his territory. Now, Hizir led successful attacks on Spain possessions. Hizir died in 1547, but now the Ottoman had more control throughout the Mediterranean.

    Sir Francis Drake: El Dragon
    Sir Francis Drake was a pirate/privateer known as 'El Dragon,' the first ever English pirate to sail across the world. He led ships against the Spanish {sfg.jpeg} Sir Francis DrakeMain in West Indies and Central America. At age 24, he was made captain of the Judith. The well-mannered pirate led 27 ships that aimed to capture Panama in 1595, but failed. He survived, but lost many of his ships in Juan Ulua. He is known for his attack on the Spanish treasure ship, 'The Cacafuego' in 1597. Because of the retrieval of the ship's valuables, Queen Elizabeth came aboard his ship, the Golden Hind, to knight him. With his discovery he gained wealth and power. After his death, his body was burnt with his ship.

    This definition often makes it harder to catch pirates in modern times. The pirates can sneak out of being called pirates by just simply staying within the boundaries of a country or by having a special group or organization back on land that they are working for. Although the U.N. definition makes it harder to catch pirates, other codes and laws issued by other countries and organizations may make it easier.
    How does piracy start in modern times? The piracy often occurs because of two reasons. The first reason is that there is no way to earn a living, because the country in which the pirates are from might be experiencing hard economic times. The second reason is that there could have been a collapse of government, so there are not any officials to enforce the law. This is what leads to lawlessness, or piracy! For example, Somali pirate attacks have been a problem since the 1990s, when the Somali government collapsed.
