Destruction of the fleet
Barbossa's fleet was a fleet of ten pirate ships led by Captain Hector Barbossa. During a brief period of time between 1750 and 1751 the fleet ruled the seas of the New World. The fleet was destroyed by the cursed Captain Armando Salazar and his ghost ship the Silent Mary.
When Blackbeard was assassinated in the Battle for the Fountain of Youth in 1750, Barbossa took his place as captain of Queen Anne's Revenge. Quickly he assembled a pirate fleet of ten ships, with the Queen Anne's Revenge serving as his flagship. He became the terror of the Seven Seas, pillaging the wealthy trade ships and filling the holds of the Queen Anne's Revenge with treasures beyond most men's wildest dreams. With the power of the Sword of Triton, Barbossa finally fulfilled his old desire of living the life of a rich rogue. He surrounded himself with riches, dressing himself in finest uniforms he could steal, and even replaced his wooden peg leg with one made of gold. He seemed to do this for his men as well, because they all wore fine, elegant clothing.
In 1751, the accursed Spanish pirate hunter Capitán Armando Salazar was released from the Devil's Triangle, and he decided to continue with his anti-piracy campaign. He first attacked the Red Dragon, and crushed it, leaving one survivor to tell the tale. In the next few hours, he destroyed three more ships: the Jonty Lark, the Golden Pheasant, and the Rising Phoenix, but left a survivor in all three. In just a few days he destroyed all ships belonging to the fleet with the exception of Queen Anne's Revenge. Later, after Barbossa learned of the destruction of his fleet, he sailed in search of Salazar and his undead crew. When he found them, the ghosts jumped aboard, and while Barbossa and Salazar were making a deal, Salazar had his crew killed at least eight pirates from Barbossa's crew. The Queen Anne's Revenge was abandoned, as the ghosts forced the human pirates aboard their own ship.
