Around 1715, Nassau was the refuge for hundreds of pirates. Benjamin Hornigold emerged as the unofficial leader of the pirate groups evolving around the island. Hornigold and another pirate named Edward Thatch often organized their raids on European ships. The Bahamas then transformed into a republic of pirates, with Nassau a stronghold filled by outlaws.
