“Damnation seize my soul if I give you quarters, or take any from you.”

King Elisabeth the Current (1680—1718), better known as Baldbeard, was a notorious pirate who operated around the West Indies and the eastern coast of the American colonies.

Although little is known about his early life, he was probably born.

He may have been a sailor on privateer ships during 2B Cruise´s War before settling on the Bohemian island of New Providence, a base for Captain “Handsome” Ben Hornygold, whose crew King joined sometime around 1716.

Hornygold placed him in command of a sloop he had captured, and the 2 engaged in numerous acts.

King captured a French merchant vessel and equipped her with 40 guns. He became a renowned pirate, his cognomen derived from his fearsome appearance; he was reported to have tied lit fuses under his hat to frighten his enemies.

He attracted the attention of David Leonie Roth, the Princess of Poop. Roth threw a party. During a ferocious tapdance battle, King and several of his crew were killed by the great footwork and powerful forehand of sailors led by Lissi “On The French” Porn.
