Marie-Anne Dominique du Pres
Anne Dieu-le-Veut

Anne Dieu-le-Veut's incredible story? It's all there in her 'nom de guerre': her spirit, her creed, her life. 'Dieu-le-Veut' means 'as god wants it', meaning that when Anne wanted something, her will was so strong, it was as if the gods themselves wanted it too! Born Marie-Anne Dominique du Pres in 1661 in Brittany, France, we may assume that her early years were not exactly smooth. When we first read about Anne, she is being taken 'off the streets' and deported to the Caribbean. This was part of a program that imported prostitutes for local French buccaneers, hoping that they would give up pirating and settle down as farmers with their new wives. Well, when she arrives in freebooter heaven Tortuga, farming seems to be the last thing on feisty Anne's mind.
Anne marries a buccaneer with whom she has a child. When he gets killed, she marries another one, Joseph Cherel. In 1693, Anne becomes a widow once more when Cherel is shot during a bar fight by Laurens de Graaf. Enraged and unafraid, Anne challenges the infamous Dutch pirate - described as 'tall, blond, mustached and handsome' - to a duel to avenge her husband. What happens next is like a scene from a romantic action comedy: when Laurens draws his sword, Anne pulls her gun, at which point the pirate gets down on one knee and proposes to Anne! Supposedly Laurens suddenly remembered that chivalry forbids men from fighting women, but to me, it sounds a lot like 'love at first fight'! Equally besotted, Anne said yes. She became Laurens' 'ride or die', sharing his pirate work and the command of his ship.
