Atrocious Admiral Henry


Many a pirate took to the seas in search of the hidden treasure of Captain Kidd, the pirate king. Henry, the Head Admiral of the naval fleet, sneered at such pirates. Henry had once been a pirate himself, but had seen too many fools sink to their graves in their pursuit of loot. During his time as a pirate, Henry had learned only one thing: "The sea be nothing to take lightly."

Name originEdit

Henry is an English masculine name of Germanic origin; the meaning is "ruler of the estate, house owner, lord of the manor". From the Old German name Heimirich which meant "home leader, home ruler". A two-element name, it is derived from haim meaning "home, homeland" and rîc meaning "rich, power, ruler". Norman name that is a favored royal name (for eight kings) of England and France. Heinrich is a German form; Henryk is Polish, Henri is French and Finnish.

Henry Every, also Evory or Avery, (23 August 1659 – after 1696), was an English pirate who operated in the Atlantic and Indian oceans in the mid-1690s. He likely used several aliases throughout his career, including Henry Bridgeman, and was known as Long Ben to his crewmen and associates. Dubbed "The Arch Pirate" and "The King of Pirates" by contemporaries, Every was the most notorious pirate of his time; he earned his infamy by becoming one of the few major pirate captains to retire with his loot without being arrested or killed in battle, and also for being the perpetrator of what has been called the most profitable pirate raid in history.
