The Pirate Queen
She ruled the high seas—and defied an empire....
The Story of Grace O'Malley, Irish Pirate
Grace O'Malley commanded a dozen ships and the obedience of thousands of men. Her empire stretched from Connaught on the Irish coast to the cobalt aters of Africa. Through the daring of her piracy, Grace nearly bankrupted the English treasuryand her outright defiance brought embarrassment to Elizabeth I. Yet the lives of these two amazing women were inextricably intertwinedand their eventual meeting during the most brilliant and romantic era that Europe has ever known would shock the world.
