Stede Bonnet

Stede Bonnet was a pirate of the people, having left his comfy home life for that of defying a government as many others wished they could. Using his wealth to have a ship made for him and a bought crew, he became known as ‘The Gentlemen Pirate’. While many other pirates doubted him as a captain, Bonnet managed to barricade towns, capture large vessels, and made a successful career of adventure over riches.
