    Blackbeard on the basis of what was done to him after he died. There's something immortal about having your decapitated head attached to the front of a naval ship....

    I know, TMI. :p

    I like the Dread Pirate Roberts the most. But Black Beard is a close second.

    Henry Morgan, easily the most succesful pirate ever. Got incredibly rich, retired, became a member of the ruling council. It's just like the awesome video game Pirates!. :p

    William Dampier. More than just a thug with an exaggerated or whitewashed, polished reputation.
