"Fool! I am the Governor of Tortuga. Who the blazes are you? And why are you wearing my hat and cloak?"
―Governor of Tortuga to Jack Sparrow[src]

This man was the Governor of Tortuga during the Age of Piracy. Some time after Jack Sparrow's second escape from Port Royal, commodore Norrington was chasing Sparrow on Tortuga. He and his men encountered the Governor who threatened to hang Norrington and his men as spies.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The governor of Tortuga was never named in any official Pirates of the Caribbean material. However, the timeline established in On Stranger Tides and Dead Men Tell No Tales sets the events of In Jack We Trust! around 1728/1729, a time when Saint Dominique, and Tortuga with it, was governed by Gaspard de Goussé, comte de la Roche Allard, so it's possible this character is supposed to be him.
