Woodes Rogers! Scourge of Pirates!

Arrr Woodes Roger's Outfit be the perfect garb for privateers turned Governors! This outfit make colorful use of Calico, Red and Gold! Though it be regal enough to command the respect of both Pirates AND the Royal Navy, we offer it to ye as an affordable outfit! 

Woodes Rogers himself was a famous (or infamous dependin' on yer point of view) English Privateer n' Pirate Hunter. As Governor of the Bahamas he even suppressed the pirates of Nassau!

 


Bein' a privateer meant he had received a commission from the English Government to perform selective piratical acts against enemies of the crown. In exchange privateers would send a percentage of wealth back to their employer. Additionally ye were allowed to carry a "Letter of Marque" to prove yar legal status, n' sometimes allowed ye to be treated fairly as a prisoner of war if captured.

After fightin' as a privateer against the Spanish, Woodes Rogers became a pirate hunter with great support from the English. He lead an expedition to Madagascar to deal with a sizable population of pirates. Rather than fight the pirates, he offered clemency from the English government. A Full Pardon was given to any willing pirates who wanted to retire.

 


It was so successful that he was appointed Governor of the Bahamas n' was tasked with pacifying the Pirate Republic of Nassau. Many pirates accepted the Full Pardon, n' some even turned on their Brethren by becomin' Pirate Hunters! http://bit.ly/2jtj3Ax
