Caribbean pirate Anne Bonney (1702-1782) and her lover Mary Read were captured while defending their ship, while pregnant. In the gallows Bonney said to the ship’s captain «Calico Jack» Rackham: she was «sorry to see him there, but if he had fought like a Man, he need not have been hang’d like a Dog.» She escaped execution due to pregnancy, then settled into married family life like nothing had ever happened. Little is know of her appearance, so this is an imagined portrait.
