Queen Anne's Revenge: Queen Anne's Revenge was the name of the flagship of the infamous pirate Blackbeard. He used her for less than a year, but was an effective tool in his prize-taking. In 1718, Blackbeard ran the ship aground at Beaufort Inlet, North Carolina in order to escape his pursuers. It was one of the biggest pirate ships during it's days.
Queen Anne is remembered for achieving the Union of England and Scotland and bringing the War of the Spanish Succession to a conclusion. And although she endured 17 pregnancies, Anne left no heir, and her Protestant cousin, George of Hanover, succeeded her in 1714. (Queen Anne by Charles Jervas.
