THE LEGEND OF CAPTAIN MORGAN

(1635 - 1688)

1635

THE YEAR I WAS BORN IN WALES.


1654

I BECAME A LEGAL PIRATE (OR A BUCCANEER AS THEY CALL THEM) DEFENDING BRITISH INTERESTS AND HAVING ADVENTURES WITH MY CREW.


1662

I WAS AWARDED THE TITLE OF CAPTAIN FOR MY FIRST SHIP AT THE YOUNG AGE OF 27.


1673

CHARLES II, THE SAME SCOUNDREL THAT IMPRISONED ME THE PREVIOUS YEAR, KNIGHTED ME - I BECAME SIR HENRY MORGAN.


1680

I WAS MADE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR OF JAMAICA - THE PARTY CAPITAL OF ALL THE LAND AND SEAS.


1685

IN MY FINAL YEARS I ENJOYED SPENDING RETIREMENT ON MY SUGAR CANE PLANTATION UNTIL I WAS FINALLY WHISKED AWAY TO DAVY JONES' LOCKER.


1688

IT MAY HAVE BEEN THE DAY I WAS LAID TO REST IN THE SANDY SHORES OF PORT ROYAL, JAMAICA, BUT A MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE SHOOK THE ISLAND, AND CAST MY COFFIN INTO THE CHURNING WATERS OF PORT ROYAL HARBOUR. MY COFFIN HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN AGAIN, BUT MY LEGEND STILL LIVES ON TODAY...
