|Pierre le Porc|
|Behind the scenes|
Pierre le Porc was the French captain who sailed in the Caribbean Sea during the 1740s.
At some point in the 1740s, Pierre arrived in the Caribbean, and he proclaimed himself Lord of Ile d'Etable de Porc. From that island, he planned to take over the whole eastern Caribbean. Soon, he learned that his old enemy, the Spanish captain Garcia de la Avaricia, had similar plans.
Quickly, Pierre started recruiting pirates to defend his island, promising them untold riches. Many of them agreed to fight for him, and he provided them with Letters of Marque, to show them that they are legitimate privateers fighting for France. However, it is unknown is his Letters were actually signed and sealed by the King of France, and thus valid, or not.
Pierre's privateers fought many battles against their Spanish enemies, and many ships and lives were lost in that war. Constant stress and battles took their toll on Pierre, as even his white powder makeup couldn't hide his reddened eyes and weary disposition.
Behind the scenes
- It is possible that Pierre is based on another POTC character, Capitaine Chevalle, the French Pirate Lord who has a heated rivalry with the Spanish pirate Eduardo Villanueva.
