Summary

«–¿Queréis explicar a la Corte en qué consiste el oficio de privateer?

–Un privateer es un soldado al servicio de la Corona inglesa que cobra su sueldo de los bienes incautados al enemigo.»

En 1685, Sir Henry Morgan, a quien cualquiera que no fuera súbdito de la Corona inglesa consideraría un vil pirata, demandó a dos reconocidos libreros de Londres y reclamó de cada uno de ellos la suma de diez mil libras esterlinas por daños a su honor.
 
A través del juicio por difamación se narra la seductora vida del corsario Henry Morgan (1635- 1688), desde sus orígenes humildes en Llanrumney, país de Gales, hasta su ascenso a sir del Reino de Inglaterra, gracias a sus batallas en contra de la Corona española, escenificadas principalmente en el mar Caribe –Yucatán, Honduras, Nicaragua, Maracaibo, Portobelo– y, en especial, la toma y saqueo de Panamá en el Pacífico.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In 1685, Sir Henry Morgan —whom anyone who was not a subject of the Royal English Crown would have considered a vile pirate— sued two renowned London booksellers and claimed from each the sum of ten thousand sterling pounds for damages to his honor.

The alluring life of privateer Henry Morgan (1635-1688) is narrated through the ensuing defamation trial: from his humble origins in Llanrumney, Wales, to his rise to Sir of the Kingdom of England as recognition for his battles against the Spanish Crown, staged mainly in the Caribbean Sea —Yucatán, Honduras, Nicaragua, Maracaibo, Portobelo— and, especially, for the capturing and looting of Panama in the Pacific.
