Let’s face it. Pirates are cool. And historical women are cool.

So female pirates from history are the coolest, like icy cool. My next installment for the folks over at HistoryNet.com features three women, from ancient time to the Elizabethan Era, whose nautical prowess brought them infamy.

Without eye patches, even.

Read about these historical female pirates.


Today was a good day over at GreatHistory.com. The retelling of the Native American story, the history of piracy and the US, the un-inevitability of a China-US conflict, and the harried life of a single mom in the 19th century are all highlighted.

History, it seems, is becoming more and more relevant.

Take a look see.
