Born as Edward Teach in 1680 Bristol, England, he trolled theWest Indies and the east coast of Britain’s North American colonies in search ofill-gotten booty.Upon sight of his ominous sailing ship, “Queen Anne’s Revenge,” most merchantships, as well as would-be opponents, would reverse course and retreat lest theybecome engaged in vicious confrontation with the bloodthirsty sea bandit. Besides his full and flowing beard from which he coined his imposing sailingname, Blackbeard was also known for his coveted buried treasure, that whichhas yet to be found, even to this day.
