A pirate's "Letter of Marque" - a license by a government to attack and loot enemy ships. Queen Elizabeth hired sailors to fight the Spanish. They were called privateers. She didn’t want to use her own navy to fight the mighty Spanish Armada in the Caribbean. When the war was over, the privateers became pirates because they didn’t have jobs anymore. Privateers didn’t attack ships from the country that paid them, but pirates did not usually care about nationality.
