This page is not, strictly speaking, a Renaissance page. When most folks think of pirates, they usually think of the late 1600's or early 1700's. That's well beyond the time-frame that we usually work in. However, with the current surge in popularity of pirates, it seems appropriate to treat the matter here.

Thing is, there are already a ton of great resources out there. It would be kind of pointless for me to try to add my two cents, when most of what I know was simply gleaned from other sites. Therefore, a fairly long list of links follows:
