The familiar image of piracy has been created from Robert Louis Stevensons Treasure Island , the swashbuckling novels of Rafael Sabatini and the Hollywood films that followed in their wake. Pirates of the Caribbean shows how this popular picture is, in fact, only a small part of a very long story.It begins with the arrival of Spanish settlers in the New World.

They found an immense amount of wealth there, in the form of gold and other precious metals and jewels. These early settlements extracted these treasures and sent them back to Spain in fleets of galleons. When France and Spain went to war in the 1520s, these settlements and galleons became the target for privateers in the service of the French king. From these beginnings, the whole edifice of piracy emerged.
