- "Spanish pirates! Vagabonds and lummoxes! What are they doing in our Caribbean, I'd like to know? Don't they have their own sea to pillage and plunder?"
- ―Jack Sparrow
The Spanish Treasure Fleet smuggled raw gold between Morocco and Turkey, and was frequently attaked by the Barbary Corsairs who operated in the same waters. This led to a rivalry between Villanueva and Ammand the Corsair. Chevalle's pirates were also known to plunder ships of the Treasure Fleet returning from Mexico.
Behind the scenesEdit
- In real-world history, the Spanish Treasure Fleet was never affiliated with pirates. Instead, it was often targeted by pirates in the Caribbean.
