"How's Mum? [Teague shows a shrunken head]...She looks great."
Jack Sparrow to Edward Teague about his mother[src]

This woman was the mother of Jack Sparrow and presumably the wife of Captain Edward Teague. Not much of her life is known, only that she gave birth to her son Jack on a ship during a typhoon.[1] After her death, her head was cut off and shrunk. This grisly effigy was in the possession of her husband, Teague, who passed it on to his son, Jack Sparrow, shortly after the Fourth Brethren Court. Jack kept the shrunken head with him at all times by tying it up on his belt. The head hung from Jack's belt during the latter portion of the War Against Piracy and the quest for the Fountain of Youth.

Behind the scenes

  • Though it has yet to be confirmed, it is possible that Jack Sparrow's mother was a member of Edward Teague's crew.



Notes and references

  1. Jack Sparrow was said to be born on a pirate ship in a typhoon, therefore she had to have given birth to him during a typhoon.
