23. Anne Bonny
Say hello to the most famous female pirate in all of history! Born in 1697, Anne Bonne was an Irish woman who lived the life of a pirate in the Caribbean sea. In 1715, she was married and moved to The Bahamas, which was a hotbed of pirates at the time.
There, she met pirate Jack Rackham and became a fellow pirate and lover. In fact, she initially dressed as a man on the ship, so that people don’t find out that shes a woman! She was captured, together with JAck in 1720 and was sentenced to death. However, since she was pregnant, the sentence was stayed. However, no one knows what happened to her after that.
