Jean Malot, better known as Captain Snake – a 16th-century French pirate in the Italian comic book Zagor; all his male descendants share his name and nickname Maxi – an Okinawan pirate from the Soul series of video games who wields nunchaku ; unlike Cervantes de Leon from the same series, Maxi does not resemble stereotypical depictions of. The Story of Jean Lafitte. Jean Lafitte was born in France around the year and traveled to the United States when he was in his early twenties. Exactly where he was from remains a bit clouded, but what is clear is that he settled in the New Orleans area with his mother and brother in the early s.   Books and movies have been written about him. A National Park and the oldest rumored bar in the United States is named after the man, the pirate. There was even a ride at the old JazzLand amusement park themed for him. But who was the “real” Jean Lafitte? Jean Lafitte (left), and his younger brother, Alexandre, ca (HNOC). Jeanne de Clisson (–), also known as Jeanne de Belleville and the Lioness of Brittany, was a Breton former noblewoman who became a privateer to avenge her husband after he was executed for treason by the French king.

The early life of Jean Lafitte and Pierre varies as well, but Jean most likely spent his youth in the wetlands and bayous south of New Orleans. He was once said to know every inlet better than any other man alive.   Although La Trompeuse burned in the harbor of Charlotte Amalie, the crew escaped—including the pirate leader, Jean Hamlin. Esmit, the crooked governor of St. Thomas, aided in his escape, according to a letter written by St. Thomas resident Andreas Brock and printed in Paiewonsky’s book. The amazing treasure of the pirate Olivier Levasseur, also know as La Buse (The Buzzard), is truly one of the greatest pirate treasure in pirate history. It is believed that his treasure is worth more than one billion dollars, including a large solid gold cross, inlaid with diamonds.   Olivier Levasseur (known also by his nicknames ‘La Buse’, meaning ‘the Buzzard’, or ‘La Bouche’, meaning ‘the Mouth’) was a French pirate who was active during the 1st half of the 18th century. Whilst Levasseur was a notorious and much-feared pirate during his days, his greatest legacy is the alleged treasure that he had hidden.
