Ireland's pirate queen : the true story of Grace O'Malley by Anne Chambers( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

She was married twice, divorced once, took a lover when she wanted, and gave birth to one of her sons on the deck of her own ship. She was Grace O'Malley, the sixteenth-century Irish woman who provoked awe, anger, admiration, and fear in the English men who, by persuasion and by the sword, came to conquer the land of her birth. Born in 1530, the daughter of an Irish chieftain, she inherited her father's taste for the seafaring life and eventually took command of his fleet of galleys and their hard-bitten, all-male crews. For fifty years she traded the clan's produce in Ireland, Scotland, and Spain, skillfully practiced the time-honored craft of piracy and plundering, and led rebellions against the invading English. On land and sea she was a fearless leader, a political pragmatist, a ruthless mercenary, and a shrewd negotiator -- as shown in her fabled meeting with her rival and protector, Queen Elizabeth. And yet, as thrilling and fascinating as her life story is, what happened to her after her life is equally instructive

'There came to me also a most famous feminine sea called Granny Imallye ... with three galleys and two hundred fighting men ...

' Sir Henry Sidney, Lord Deputy of Ireland, 1576.

Despite her parents' objections, Grace becomes a better sailor than any of her father's crew and so the adventures of the Pirate Queen begin. We set sail on her galley to Spain where war with England affects Grace and Ireland. We meet her husbands, Donal of the Battles and Richard in Iron, and are on board ship for her son's birth and pirate attacks. After many escapades we sail to London for her famous meeting with Queen Elizabeth I. And we stay with her in her castle at Rock Fleet where she dies in 1603.

Shadow lord : Theobald Bourke, Tibbott-ne-Long, 1567-1629 : son of the Pirate Queen, Grace O'Malley by Anne Chambers( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is perhaps providential that the youngest son of Ireland's famous Pirate Queen, Granuaile (Grace O'Malley), was born on the high seas aboard his mother's galley. This event, as well as inheriting her maritime skill, gave rise to his name, Tiboid-ne-Long (Theobald or Tibbott-of-the-Ships). Saved at birth from Barbery Coast pirates, Tibbott Bourke, seems destined to fulfil his birthright and, like his father, become a minor leader in the fragmented and twilight world of Gaelic Ireland. But national and international politics catapults him into prominence in a period of immense change, as the battle-lines between two incompatible protagonists--the antique Gaelic world of his birth and the exploitive, acquisitive world of Elizabethan England--are drawn. Survival becomes the spur. Only one side can win. Only the very few will survive. With a Machiavellian mind that out manoeuvers his opponents with opportunism, cunning and daring, Tibbott sets out to salvage what he can from the wreckage. Enduring imprisonment, torture, famine, dispossession and isolation, earning the suspicion, envy and hatred of both sides, resorting to double-dealing, chicanery, even murder, Tibbott weaves his way through the military and political morass in his all-consuming passion to survive. Shadow Lord is more than just a portrait of Tibbott Bourke, it is also a unique insight into one of the most profound periods of change, incorporating new unpublished manuscript material. Shadow Lord also presents new information on the descendents of Tibbott Bourke and on the legal controversy that surrounds his title, Viscount Mayo, to the present day"--Provided by publisher
