Origin[edit | edit source]

The Queen Anne's Revenge was the infamous flagship of the pirate Blackbeard, who patrolled the West Indies and North American colonies from 1717 to 1718.

Supposedly an English merchant vessel originally named the Concord, this frigate was captured by the French navy in 1710 and served predominantly as a slave trading ship before being taken by Blackbeard in 1717.

In June of 1718, Blackbeard ran The Queen Anne's Revenge aground a sandbar in Beaufort Inlet, North Carolina, while fleeing the Royal Navy for having blockaded Charleston's port only days earlier. It was once believed that he deliberately grounded the ship in an effort to downsize his militia, though an examination of the wreck and the collection of ballast in its middle section suggests that it may have been an accident.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Gazing into the eyes of the figurehead will force victims to blind themselves in any matter possible.

Collection[edit | edit source]

The Warehouse was alerted of the artifact's presence by reports of a staff of janitors at a storage facility systematically gouging their eyes out. It is currently stored in the Warehouse with a mask over the eyes. It is kept away from the rest of the vessel as it is suspected reuniting them may only amplify the powers of both artifacts.
