This week, Chloe researched the 16th Century Irish pirate queen, Grace O'Malley!
Grace was infamous in Ireland and England alike. Her enemies feared her. Her followers respected her. And for over 40 years, she raided and pillaged English settlements in protest of the creeping Imperialism in her home country. A day after the birth of her son, she got out of bed to quell an attempt by corsairs to take over her ship.
Check out the full episode to hear these stories and more, including a final confrontation with Queen Elizabeth that literally went down in the history books.
