CORSAIR

The term corsair was used between the 16th and 19th centuries for Christian and Muslim privateers in the Mediterranean. The Barbary Corsairs came from North African States and were often hired by Muslim nations to attack Christian vessels. The Christian Corsairs, also known as The Maltese Corsairs, took their orders from the Knights of St. John and were mainly involved in attacks against the Turks.
