Before there were North European pirates, the first Castilian entrepreneurs operating in America had also sometimes been traders and sometimes raiders. 25 Whether pirates chose one mode or the other depended on a variety of circumstances, such as whether or not one was familiar with potential local partners, far from or close to one’s base, at the beginning or the end of one’s venture, and so forth. What mattered was to be ready for either option. When the Dutch West Indies Company was founded in 1621 as a joint-stock freebooting venture to compete with the Spanish trade, it set for itself the dual objectives of commerce and privateering raids.
And commerce was equally nourished when the cargo sold in home ports had been seized rather than bought. 30 anne pérotin-dumon Violence, then, was not a trait of piracy but more broadly of the commerce of that age. Commercial proﬁts were linked pragmatically to considerations of war and aggression, though at the same time the state could be expected to put protective formations in place, like convoys that became a regular practice in the seventeenth century. The Dutch theoreticians Grotius and De la Court who, already in the seventeenth century, insisted that war was harmful to commerce and put their hopes in free trade rather than control of the seas, were exceptions.
In the eyes of the Spanish, this man was a pirate if ever there was one. But in Normandy in the church of Villequier, of which he was the lord, beautiful stained glass windows recount this local hero’s capture of Montezuma’s treasure. In Malaysia around 1830, the sailor whom the officials of the English trading company called a “ruffianly pirate,” was a hero to local Malay merchants. The same relativity has affected judgments on the repression of piracy. At the very end of the seventeenth century, Bellomont was appointed governor of the colony of New York, with a mission to put an end to the activity of pirates along the coast.
