Count Maurycy Beniowski also known as Baron Maurice de Benyowski was born in Poland to a Noble family. At that time Poland was partitioned into three parts. Beniowski was born in the Russian part and it determined his future life as an adventurer. As a youngster he took part in the Polish uprising to liberate Poland from the Russian rule (Konfederacja Barska) and after being captured by Russians was sent into exile to Siberia. However he managed to escape and after some tumultuous years he found himself leading an armed expedition headed toward Madagascar. On an African Island near Madagascar he managed to establish a stronghold, and pronounced himself the king of Madagascar.
That which classifies him as a pirate is that he was not above attacking the shipping lanes around Madagascar, and he didn’t represent any authority. One of the nearby islands (Mauritius) was named after this Polish adventurer and to this day he is remembered there.
