A ''Pirate'' of Netherlands origins, Arumer Zwarte or ''The Black Army'' – was a ''Land Based'' Pirate Organization in the 16th Century AD. Speculated to have as many as 2,000 – they were well equipped (very much as Mercenaries) and scourge of The Netherland Hapsburg Dynasty. Active in mostly outlaying Regions, The Pirate Army robbed, raped, murdered - and created general mayhem for an incredible 8 year period. Supported by Austrian Allies, The Hapsburg raised a 4,000 Man Army to deal with ''Arumer Zwarte''. Surrounded and forced into capitulation by the end of 1523, all Leaders (regardless of Rank), were beheaded – ending The ''Black Army'' and it's tyranny.
