Queen Anne's Revenge
Queen Anne's Revenge was an early 18th century ship made famous by Edward Teach, infamously known as Blackbeard. It is believed she began life circa 1710 in England but was soon captured by France. She was sailed under the name La Concorde as a naval frigate, merchant vessel, and eventually a slave ship. Blackbeard captured the La Concorde in approximately 1717 and she became his flag ship while being renamed Queen Anne's Revenge. Under Blackbeard, the Queen Anne's Revenge sailed with a crew of approximately 300 with an armament of 40 canons. The Queen Anne's Revenge ran aground in present day Beaufort Inlet, North Carolina in the spring of 1718 where she remained until discovery in 1996.
At Black Flag Penworks, the Queen Anne's Revenge represents the classic theme of the early 18th century vessel with a wood pen body tapered towards a typically contrasting finial. The gentle taper of the pen body and finial shape is inspired by that of a ship's hull.
