Under The Black Flag Timeline Launched

Take a Historical Crash Course In The Golden Age of Pirates.

Below is an Infographic riddled with facts about the Golden Age of Pirates in the 18th century. We’ve referenced multiple sources to provide a visual introduction to the period. Learn about the events that made this age of Piracy possible, get a taste of the living conditions that might make an honest sailor turn Pirate, and uncover some of the key places, people and events that you will experience in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.

Click here for the full version.

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.
