Top Row (l. to r.)
- Abner Dalrymple - 1887 Pittsburgh Alleghenys from a trade card (I thought it would be funny to include an old pic of a Pittsburgh Pirate, butit turns out they didn't change their name to the Pirates until 1890 - oh well!)
- Billie Dove as Princess Isobel in the movie "The Black Pirate" 1926
- Douglas Fairbanks as The Duke of Arnoldo - The Black Pirate in the movie of the same name 1926
- Mitred Pirate - scan from a copyright-free design book
- Edward Trelawny (ca. 1810) - a privateer captain by his own account. At that time, he was married to Zela Trelawny who stayed with him aboard ship, saving his life by firing a carronade when he was ambushed. She died by poison from a jealous rival. His account, if true would certainly make her a candidate as a Pirate Bride. There are those who dispute some of Trelawny's accounts of his early years. - This image from a painting by Joseph Severn
