|Behind the scenes|
New Orleans, also known as Nouvelle-Orleans, was a port located at the mouth of the Mississippi River in southern Louisiana. The city was founded by the French in 1718 and soon became a prosperous port. By the 1720s, New Orleans was officially under French administration, but would be known for its charitable and practical leaning towards piracy by being home to many pirates and a large number of mystics.
Soon after its foundation, New Orleans attracted many visitors, the British and the Spanish among them. The city was protected by a French police unit. Due to its non-stop activities, New Orleans became know as the glittering city.
By the 1720s, New Orleans became a port known for its charitable and practical leaning towards piracy. Jack Sparrow and the crew of the Barnacle visited New Orleans while searching for the Sun-and-stars amulet. While there, they battled Madame Minuit and rescued Tim Hawk. Two of Jack's crew, Jean Magliore and Constance Magliore hailed from New Orleans. At that time the whole city was turned into silver, though it was restored back to its normal state.
In the 1730s, during Jack Sparrow's search for the Shadow Gold, the Black Pearl docked in New Orleans, where Jack's old friend, Jean Magliore, and his cousin Marcella joined the ship's crew. Some time later, the city became a home port to the New Orleans pirates, led by Gentleman Jocard, the Pirate Lord of the Atlantic Ocean.
