Meet Capt. Christina Anna Skytte – Nutty Nations
She had a parrot on her shoulder…She talked a lot… She digged gold… And if you got on the wrong side of her she fed you to the sharks.
Meet Capt. Christina Anna Skytte, a Swedish Baroness and pirate. She was also the sister of the pirate baron Gustav Skytte, who from 1657 onward secretly attacked and plundered ships with his own pirate ship in the Baltic sea. Christina Anna and her fiance, baron Gustaf Drake, were also partners in the piracy, and were to have had one of their conspirators killed, likely because he had wished to withdraw from the business. She married Drake in 1662. Christina Anna was no passive partner to her brother and spouse: she was present in person in 1663, when they attacked a Dutch merchant ship, murdered its crew and sunk the ship somewhere between Öland and Bornholm. This attack exposed them and lead to the arrest of her brother, who was executed. She and her spouse fled from Sweden to avoid arrest. When they returned in 1668, they were pardoned and settled on Edeby Manor outside Nyköping.
