Mary Read at Pirate's Quest

Mary Read was brought up as a boy under the name ‘Mark Read’, after the loss of her brother. Posing as a man, she joined the navy, where she was captured by Jack Rackham. Initially reluctant to turn pirate, she befriended Anne Bonny, staying as the 2nd female on board. Having more fight than most of the men, she proved that woman were just as valuable to any crew.
