Henry Avery

Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Henry Avery's pirating career lasted less than one year, and he only ever took a handful of ships. One of those ships, however, was the treasure ship of the Grand Moghul of India. Avery and his men made off with a king's ransom. They took their loot and sailed out of history and into legend!
