Schwartzbart was a notorious English pirate who operated around theWest Indies and the eastern coast of the American Colonies in the early 1700's, who caught the public imagination. Despite his ferocious reputation, there are no verified accounts of his ever having murdered or harmed those he held captive. He was romanticised after his death and became the inspiration for a number of pirate-themed works of fiction across a range of genres.
