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.
When, in 1751, the accursed Capitan Armando Salazar was released from the Devil's Triangle, and decided to continue with his anti-piracy campaign. In just a few days he destroyed all ships belonging to the fleet with the exception of Queen Anne's Revenge.
