this post is dumb,

(westren) pirates where civilised people, they had to be , if they really where violent thugs every last man would fight them to the death

they where made into swashbuckling killers by movies

No they werent. Not even close. While they had those democracies on their ships, it hardly makes them civilized. They werent attacking each other on board, which i guess is what you might mean, but anywhere else theyd kill you without batting an eye.

He was hung. And placed in what is called a gibbet cage afterwards. They tarred his body to make sure it didnt rot and hung the cage over the edge of a pier so that the tide could wash over it 3 times. Ive been studying piracy since i was six.

Didn't Blackbeard turn out to have 13 bullets or something in him once they finally put him down?

Close. 22 wounds, including 4 gunshot wounds. The others were cuts and stabs and such.

Still pretty damn impressive. Always found Blackbeard very intriguing, partially for that reason.
