There have been a number of famous (or infamous) women pirates throughout history. There were women pirates who showed up in China or the Adriatic Sea before the Romans were making their conquests across Europe. There were girl pirates throughout the Middle Ages across northern Europe, and there were women pirates in the 16th and 17th centuries.
One notable woman pirate of the 17th century was Ann Dieu-le-Veut. Ann (frequently called Marianne) was French and believed to have deported from France to Tortuga as a criminal. There, she married pirate Pierre Length. At some point, Pierre was killed in a fight by fellow buccaneer Laurens de Graff, and the story goes that Anne then challenged Laurens to a duel to avenge her husband. Laurens and Anne both drew their weapons, but Laurens relented because he would not fight a woman. Overwhelmed by her courage, Laurens proposed to Anne and she accepted (what about her husband who just died?), but reports doubt whether they were ever actually officially married because Laurens had another wife he had abandoned (not exactly the most likeable people, but these are pirates remember).
From there, Anne and Laurens traveled the Caribbean seas pirating. She did not hide her sex and is said to have commanded the ship with Laurens and fought beside him. At one point, Anne was taken prisoner by the English and released and reunited with Laurens a few years later. As to their fate, differing accounts have them settling down in the Mississippi area, and/or being killed in battle.
