Grace O'Malley's the story of Grainne Ni Mhaille, or Granuaile (Anglicized as Grace O'Malley, Grany Malley), reads like the most brazen and unlikely sort of adventure fiction, but there’s history as well as myth in the legend of the Irish noblewoman who led a band of 200 sea-raiders from the coast of Galway in the sixteenth century. Twice widowed, twice imprisoned, fighting her enemies both Irish and English for her rights, condemned for piracy, and finally pardoned in London by Queen Elizibeth herself, Grainne was one of the few sea-raiders to retire from the sea and die in her own bed, though where she’s buried remains a mystery.
