To take you deeper into the true History behind Assassin’s Creed IV, we’ve also launched "Under the Black Flag," a Historical crash course on the Golden Age of Pirates hosted entirely on Tumblr. Check back each week this month for a new chapter in the True Story of the Golden Age of Pirates. In chapter one, learn about the brutal life of a sailor in the 18th century, the “Pirate King” Henry Avery whose exploits grew to legend and inspired a generation, and the Spanish War of Succession which sowed the seeds of piracy in the Caribbean.
