             Five infamous female pirates in the world

If there is a woman on the ship, it will be an unfortunate voyage. Such a belief was once prevalent among pirates roaming the seas.

But even the conventional notion could not keep some brave women down. Not only did these women join the pirates, some of them even took the lead.

They have surpassed each other in violence. Recently, the history based British magazine History.com has made a list of 5 women pirates who are notorious in the world.

Chang Yi Sao: 

Chang Yi Sao, Chang's wife, began her career in a brothel in China. In 1801, the pirate chief Chang married her and took her to sea. Husband and wife bandits once became one of the most powerful gangs in the world. Behind such a force were over a hundred ships and about 50,000 pirates in their possession. After Chang's death in 1808, his wife, Chang Yi Sao, took over the leadership of the party. The bandits did not lose their strength under the leadership of women, but they emerged stronger than before. Not only the Chinese navy, but also the navy of various countries in the country, has become a headache for the bandits. They ransomed fishing boats, foreign ships, and kidnappings for ransom. Chiang Yi Sao died in 1844 at the age of 69.

Ann Bonnie 

The late Ann Bonnie was born about 1800. His life began as the illegitimate child of a wealthy Irish lawyer. In 1818, Ann emigrates to the United States, where she married a sailor. They later visited an island in the Bahamas, inhabited by pirates. There she left her husband and came in contact with a pirate chief named Radkman. Radcman's forces plundered the Caribbean Sea. Ann married Rackman and joined Rackman's forces. At one point, a new woman named Mary Reed was added to their group. Anne's friendship with Mary grew. The small fishing boats and merchant ships of the Caribbean Sea were always approached by the two women. Within days, Rackman's forces were captured and hanged. Fortunately, Ann survived because she was pregnant. It is said that Ann was extremely violent and miserable. It is said that he drank ram with men and was useless in driving a pistol.

Marie Reed

Marie Reed was born in England in the late seventeenth century. He was adventurous from a young age. So he started his career as a soldier in his early life as a man under the name Mark Reid. He later chose the life of a merchant sailor. Towards the end of 1810, his ship was attacked by pirates. In a daze, he loses consciousness and, when he opens his eyes, finds himself on the pirate Rackman's ship. It was during this time that he met Anne Bonnie and revealed her female identity, which was hidden behind a man's dress. He has a great friendship with Ann. Like Ann, Reid also became Calico Jack's bedfellow. Interestingly, Reid, like Ann, was pregnant when Calico Jack and all of his troops were hanged. That's why Reed also survived death. However, he died of an unknown disease inside the jail.

Grace O’Malley

There was a time when most women were deprived of education and their lives were confined to the home. At the same time, O'Malley was sailing across the British monarchy with a pirate force of 20 ships. He was also known as a bald man who cut his hair short. O'Malley was born into a powerful dynasty. That dynasty ruled the coastal areas of Western Ireland. After the ruling power came into his own hands in 1560, he started piracy at sea. During this time, he attacked Spanish and British ships. He is said to have fought at sea the day after giving birth. But in 1584 he was captured by the British government. After his release, he refrained from looting. In 1590 the government confiscated his fleet. O'Malley, 63, told Queen Elizabeth I of her broken health and fatigue, returned all her ships and begged for the release of one of her captive sons. However, history says that he and his sons were involved in the robbery until his death in 1803.

Rachel Wale

It is said that Rachel Wale was the first and only American woman to be involved in banditry. Rachel was a rural girl from Pennsylvania who ran away from home when she was a teenager and married a fisherman named George. The couple lived in Boston. But the addiction of living a little better and the financial crisis led them to a life of crime. In 1781, they bought a small boat and formed a team with a few low-income sailors. During this time, they began to rob various ships off the coast of New England. Their method was great, though ruthless. Whenever a stream flowed along the coast, they would take a boat out in the guise of a disaster victim. Rachel would stand on the deck of their boat and ask for help from passing ships. In this way, if a ship came forward with their help, Rachel and his forces would disappear. They looted the ship and killed the passengers.


In 1782, luck also played a cruel game with him. A storm one day literally destroyed her boat and her beloved husband, George, died. Then Rachel started robbing the shore instead of the water. Rachel was captured in 1789 for assaulting and burglarizing a Boston lady. She is the latest woman to be hanged in Boston, Massachusetts.
