Ever since 600 B.C., there has been rumors of female pirates. The first one is Ch'iao K'uo Fuu Jeen from China. Nobody is sure if this is true. But we know for sure that Queen Teuta of Illyria was also a female pirate in 232 B.C to 228 B.C. in Illyria named Queen Teuta of Illyria. So throughout history, there has been more female pirates than the two we always hear about; Mary Read and Anne Bonny.
