Sir Henry! I've just come from the jail, and all the prisoners have been liberated!
Sir Henry Morgan: What?! When did this happen?
Morgan's Aide: The jailer said, Blackbeard did it.
Sir Henry Morgan: Blackbeard? Blackbeard's dead.
Morgan's Aide: He ran a cutlass through the jailer, and he swears it was Blackbeard,...
Although Henry Morgan is depicted as Blaclbeard's chief antagonist, Morgan retired on 1683 and died in 1688, when Blackbeard (born circa 1680) was only eight years old. Blackbeard did not arrive in the Indies until the closing years of the 17th Century, well after Morgan's death.
Opening credits prologue: "The meeker the man, the more pirate he, Snug in his armchair, far from the sea, And reason commends his position: He has all of the fun and none of the woes, Masters the ladies and scuttles his foes, And cheats both the noose and perdition!"
