今天的书籍和电影的虚构海盗与几个世纪前在海上航行的现实海盗没有多大关系！这里有一些最着名的小说海盗，他们的历史准确度很好。描述：Long John Silver是一个迷人的流氓。年轻的吉姆霍金斯和他的朋友们开始寻找一个巨大的财富：他们雇用一艘船和船员，包括单腿的银。白银最初是一个忠诚的盟友，但很快就发现了他的背叛，因为他试图窃取船只和财宝。白银是历史上最伟大的文学人物之一，可以说是有史以来最着名的虚构海盗。在Black Sails中，Silver是聪明且机会主义的。他出现在哪里：罗伯特路易斯史蒂文森的金银岛，以及随后的无数书籍，电影，电视节目，电子游戏等。罗伯特牛顿在1950年代多次演奏他：他的语言和方言负责“海盗说话”如此受欢迎今天（“Arrrr，matey！”）。他也是电视节目Black Sails的重要角色。准确性：Long John Silver非常准确。像许多海盗一样，他在某个地方的战斗中失去了一条腿：这将使他有权在大多数海盗文章下获得额外的战利品。也像许多残废的海盗一样，他成了船上的厨师。他的背叛和来回切换侧面的能力标志着他是一个真正的海盗。他是臭名昭着的弗林特船长的军需官：据说银是弗林特唯一害怕的人。这也是准确的，因为军需官是海盗船上第二重要的职位，也是对船长权力的重要检查。他出现在哪里：加勒比海盗电影和各种其他迪斯尼商业搭档：电子游戏，玩具，书籍等。描述：由演员约翰尼·德普扮演的杰克·斯帕罗船长，是一个可以转换的可爱流氓心跳的两侧似乎总是在好人的一边。麻雀很有魅力和光滑，可以很容易地说出自己的麻烦。他对盗版有很深的依恋，并且是海盗船的上尉。准确性：杰克斯派洛船长在历史上并不准确。据说他是海盗联盟的弟兄法庭的主要成员。虽然在十七世纪晚期有一个松散的组织称为海岸兄弟，但其成员是海盗和私人，而不是海盗。海盗很少合作，有时甚至互相抢劫。杰克船长对手枪和军刀等武器的偏好是准确的。他使用智慧而不是蛮力的能力是一些人的标志，但并不是很多海盗：Howell Davis和Bartholomew Roberts就是两个例子。他的角色的其他方面，如将不死生物视为阿兹特克人诅咒的一部分，当然是无稽之谈（但有趣并且可以制作一部好电影）。描述：胡克是一个英俊的海盗，穿着华丽的衣服。因为在剑斗中失去了彼得的手，所以他有一只手代替一只手。彼得把手喂给一只饥饿的鳄鱼，现在跟随胡克，希望吃掉他的其余部分。在梦幻岛的海盗村的主，胡克是聪明，邪恶和残忍。他出现的地方：胡克船长是彼得潘的主要对手。他首次出现在J.M. Barrie 1904年的戏剧“彼得潘，或者，那个不会长大的男孩”中。自从包括电影，书籍，漫画，电子游戏等以来，他出现在与彼得潘有关的几乎所有事情中。准确性：胡克不是非常准确，事实上已经传播了一些关于海盗的神话。他不断寻求让彼得，失落的男孩或任何其他敌人“走在木板上。”这个神话现在通常与海盗有关，主要是因为胡克的受欢迎程度，尽管很少有海盗船员强迫某人走过这条路。手上的钩子现在也是海盗万圣节服装的流行部分，尽管没有着名的历史海盗曾经穿过它。他出现在哪里：恐惧海盗罗伯茨是1973年小说“公主新娘”和1987年同名电影中的角色。描述：罗伯茨是一个非常可怕的海盗，恐吓海洋。然而，据透露，罗伯茨（戴着面具）不是一个人，而是几个将这个名字交给一系列继承人的人。每个“恐惧海盗罗伯茨”在训练他的替补后退休时退休。韦斯特利，这本书和电影中的英雄，在离开去寻找公主毛茛，他的真爱之前，已经恐惧海盗罗伯茨了一段时间。准确性：非常少。除非他们真正热爱黄金和掠夺，否则没有海盗特许经营他们的名字或为“真爱”做任何事情的记录。历史上唯一唯一准确的是这个名字，向巴塞洛缪罗伯茨致敬，他是海盗黄金时代最伟大的海盗。不过，这本书和电影很有趣！
The fictional pirates of today’s books and movies don’t have much to do with the real-life buccaneers who sailed the seas centuries ago! Here are some of the most famous pirates of fiction, with their historical accuracy thrown in for good measure. Description: Long John Silver was a charming rogue. Young Jim Hawkins and his friends set out to find a great treasure: they hire a ship and crew, including the one-legged Silver. Silver is at first a loyal ally, but soon his treachery is discovered as he attempts to steal the ship and the treasure. Silver is one of the great all-time literary characters and arguably the best-known fictional pirate ever. In Black Sails, Silver is clever and opportunistic. Where he appears: Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, and subsequently countless books, movies, TV shows, video games, etc. Robert Newton played him several times in the 1950’s: his language and dialect are responsible for the “pirate speak” so popular today (“Arrrr, matey!”). He is an important character in the TV show Black Sails as well. Accuracy: Long John Silver is surprisingly accurate. Like many pirates, he had lost a limb in battle somewhere: this would have entitled him to extra loot under most pirate articles. Also like many crippled pirates, he became a ship’s cook. His treachery and ability to switch sides back and forth mark him as a true pirate. He was quartermaster under the notorious Captain Flint: it was said that Silver was the only man Flint feared. This is accurate as well, as the quartermaster was the second-most important post on a pirate ship and an important check on the captain’s power. Where he appears: The Pirates of the Caribbean movies and all sorts of other Disney commercial tie-ins: video games, toys, books, etc. Description: Captain Jack Sparrow, as played by actor Johnny Depp, is a lovable rogue who can switch sides in a heartbeat but always seems to wind up on the side of the good guys. Sparrow is charming and slick and can talk himself into and out of trouble quite easily. He has a deep attachment to piracy and to being captain of a pirate ship. Accuracy: Captain Jack Sparrow is not very historically accurate. He is said to be a leading member of the Brethren Court, a confederation of pirates. While there was a loose organization in the late seventeenth century called the Brethren of the Coast, its members were buccaneers and privateers, not pirates. Pirates rarely worked together and even robbed one another at times. Captain Jack’s preference for weapons such as pistols and sabers is accurate. His ability to use his wits instead of brute force was a hallmark of some, but not many pirates: Howell Davis and Bartholomew Roberts are two examples. Other aspects of his character, such as turning undead as part of an Aztec curse, are of course nonsense (but fun and make for a good movie). Description: Hook is a handsome pirate who dresses in fancy clothes. He has a hook in place of one hand since losing the hand to Peter in a sword fight. Peter fed the hand to a hungry crocodile, which now follows Hook around hoping to eat the rest of him. Lord of the pirate village in Neverland, Hook is clever, wicked and cruel. Where he appears: Captain Hook is the main antagonist of Peter Pan. He made his first appearance in J.M. Barrie’s 1904 play “Peter Pan, or, the boy who wouldn’t grow up.” He has appeared in just about everything related to Peter Pan since including movies, books, cartoons, video games, etc. Accuracy: Hook is not terribly accurate, and in fact has spread certain myths about pirates. He is constantly looking to make Peter, the lost boys or any other enemy “walk the plank.” This myth is now commonly associated with pirates largely because of Hook’s popularity, although very few pirate crews ever forced someone to walk the plank. Hooks for hands are also now a popular part of pirate Halloween costumes, although there are no famous historical pirates who ever wore one. Where he appears: Dread Pirate Roberts is a character in the 1973 novel The Princess Bride and the 1987 movie of the same name. Description: Roberts is a very fearsome pirate who terrorizes the seas. It is revealed, however, that Roberts (who wears a mask) is not one but several men who have handed the name down to a series of successors. Each “Dread Pirate Roberts” retires when wealthy after training his replacement. Westley, the hero of the book and movie, was Dread Pirate Roberts for a while before leaving to seek Princess Buttercup, his true love. Accuracy: Very little. There is no record of pirates franchising their name or doing anything for “true love,” unless their true love of gold and plunder counts. Just about the only thing historically accurate is the name, a nod to Bartholomew Roberts, the greatest pirate of the Golden Age of Piracy. Still, the book and movie are a lot of fun!
