Edward Teach being the real name of Blackbeard.

Also, not the deadliest pirate to have existed, just the one with the coolest sounding name.

Quoting Wiki:
"the only treasure so far recovered from Teach's exploits is the wreckage of the Queen Anne`s Revenge. In 1997, it was found and excavated,[111] and as of 2007 more than 15,000 objects have been rescued and preserved, some of which are on display at the North Carolina Maritime Museum.[112]"

Blackbeard was sailing north from Charleston when his ship went aground in what was then known as Old Topsail Inlet, now Beaufort Inlet.

After being granted a pardon from North Carolina Gov. Charles Eden in June 1718, Blackbeard was killed five months later by members of the Royal Navy of Virginia at Ocracoke Inlet.

I can see that's it a canon, but how do they know whose it is, was there a conformation on the ship?
