Blackbeard on the Cover of National Geographic! ARRRRRR!

National Geographic Exploring History: 13 Notorious Villains Special Issue

This issue introduces readers to some of history’s greatest villains, from Herod the Great, Biblical despot who built a powerful kingdom but murdered his wife, children and rivals, to Blackbeard, 18th-century pirate whose ruthless actions terrorized the American coastline. Lighter figures are also featured, including George Parker, who repeatedly sold the Brooklyn Bridge, Butch Cassidy, who robbed trains and banks with few casualties, and Elmry de Hory, perhaps the most successful art forger ever to have lived. The final section of the issue reviews the latest history books, apps, and exhibitions on tour.
