Describing the long Tudor century as ‘an age of avarice in which the Crown led by example’, David Childs examines the ways in which the seizing of foreign assets by privateers underpinned the reign of Elizabeth. He describes how the ‘pirate queen’ condoned the activities of ‘her wayward, and always disownable, pirates’, but also considers the legacy of piracy in Elizabethan naval policy as erstwhile privateers, men such as Grenville, Ralegh and Drake, became ‘admirals all for England’s sake’.
