Albert de Montblanc

Captain of the Scarborough who abandoned it after a tropical storm

Description:
Bio:

Albert de Montblanc began his pirating career as a stowaway aboard an English ship bound for the New World. He had grown up in Marseilles, France, as the son of a fishing boat captain. Unimpressed by the prospects of life as a fisherman, Montblanc hopped the next ship to the Caribbean. He served on board the Alastair, a merchant ship, for seven years, eventually working his way up to first mate. The Scarborough, a pirate ship, captured the Alastair off the coast of Maracaibo, and all survivors, including Albert, were pressed into pirate duty. Montblanc learned to love being a pirate, and worked his way into a role of prominence among the pirate crew. He served as a gunner, and for a time, navigator as well. Piratical sentiments also seeped their way into Montblanc’s mind, and he soon rose up against the captain and took the Scarborough, becoming its new captain.
