Grace O’Malley is unique as the only woman recorded on the famous Baptista Boazio map of Ireland (1599), a tribute to the status she achieved as a leader on land and at sea in the 16th century. In 1979 Anne Chambers’ original biography of this famous Irishwoman, who over the centuries had been airbrushed from historical record, put her on the map once again. The biography became a milestone in Irish publishing and the catalyst for the restoration of Grace O’Malley to political, social and maritime history, as well as establishing her as an inspirational female role model in the classroom. In the 40th anniversary edition of this international bestselling biography, drawn from rare contemporary manuscript records, the author presents Ireland’s great pirate queen not as a vague mythological figure but as one of the world’s most extraordinary female leaders. Political pragmatist and tactician, rebel, intrepid mariner and pirate, wife, lover, mother, grandmother and matriarch, the ‘most notorious woman in all the coasts of Ireland’, Grace O’Malley challenged and triumphed over the social and political barriers she encountered in the course of her long, pioneering life. Breaching boundaries of gender imbalance and bias in a period of immense social and political upheaval and change, Grace O’Malley rewrote the rules to become one of the world’s first recorded feminist trailblazers. This updated anniversary edition brings Grace O’Malley’s story to a new generation awakened to the global focus on gender equality as well as positive ageing.

The powerful story of a woman and a country fighting for the freedom that is rightfully theirs, set against the vivid and colourful background of the Elizabethan age When Elizabeth the First learns of the hereditary treasure of the Irish O’Flaherty clan, she immediately lays claim to it. But the key to the treasure lies in finding the missing grandchild of the pirate queen, Grace O’Malley. Streetwise Barbary Clampett is wrenched from the stews of London to be groomed as the long-lost heir. But Barbary has a secret, and the woman who eventually goes to Ireland on the Queen's treasure hunt has allegiance only to herself. Caught up in the cruelty and beauty of Ireland, however, she is allowed no neutrality. She falls in love and becomes drawn into the last great Irish rebellion. Now Barbary must ask herself - who is the real pirate queen, Grace O’Malley or Elizabeth herself? This gripping historical odyssey is perfect for fans of Elizabeth Chadwick and Kate Mosse. Praise for The Pirate Queen ‘A spirited and at times highly amusing account of a ghastly episode in Irish history, told from the female point of view.’ The Times ‘Very powerful. Opens fresh windows onto known history. Filled with delectable, unforgettable characters, humorous and sinewy (sometimes bawdy) prose. Strongly recommended.’ Good Book Guide

The Pirate Queen begins in Ireland with the infamous Grace O’Malley, a ruthless pirate and scourge to the most powerful fleets of sixteenth-century Europe. This Irish clan chieftain, sea captain, and pirate queen was a contemporary of Elizabeth I, a figure whose life is the stuff of myth. Regularly raiding English ships caught off Ireland’s west coast, O’Malley was purported to have fought the Spanish armada just hours after giving birth to her son. She had several husbands in her lifetime, and acquired lands and castles that still dot the Irish coastline today. But Grace O’Malley was not alone. Since ancient times, women have rowed and sailed, commanded and fished, built boats and owned fleets. As pirate, captain’s wives, lighthouse keepers and sailors in disguise they’ve explored coastlines and set off alone across unknown seas. Yet their incredible contributions have been nearly erased from the history books. In The Pirate Queen, Barbara Sjoholm brings some of these extraordinary women back to life, taking the reader on an unforgettable journey from the wild Irish coast to the haunting Scandinavian fjords in this meticulously researched, colorfully written, and truly original work

In the sixteenth century, Granuaile, the Pirate Queen, warrior and leader, was the terror of the North Atlantic and the most feared woman in Ireland. Heading a large army and a fleet of ships, she lived by trading and raiding and demanding tribute from all who sailed through her territory. Told partly through letters written to her son Tibbot, it charts the gradual decline of the Gaelic chieftains and traditions of Ireland as Elizabeth Tudor, the 'Virgin Queen' of England, extended her power throughout Ireland by bribery and slaughter. It is a story of immense bravery and daring, as Granuaile takes on the great Norman lords, smuggles weapons and mercenaries for the Ulster Gaelic O'Donnell and O'Neill clans and finally goes to confront Elizabeth Tudor herself. Some of the great figures of Irish history feature, including Red Hugh O'Donnell, Hugh O'Neill, Hugh Dubh O'Donnell, and Richard Bingham.

"It is perhaps providential that the youngest son of Ireland's famous Pirate Queen, Granuaile (Grace O'Malley), was born on the high seas aboard his mother's galley. This event, as well as inheriting her maritime skill, gave rise to his name, Tiboid-ne-Long (Theobald or Tibbott-of-the-Ships). Saved at birth from Barbery Coast pirates, Tibbott Bourke, seems destined to fulfil his birthright and, like his father, become a minor leader in the fragmented and twilight world of Gaelic Ireland. But national and international politics catapults him into prominence in a period of immense change, as the battle-lines between two incompatible protagonists--the antique Gaelic world of his birth and the exploitive, acquisitive world of Elizabethan England--are drawn. Survival becomes the spur. Only one side can win. Only the very few will survive. With a Machiavellian mind that out manoeuvers his opponents with opportunism, cunning and daring, Tibbott sets out to salvage what he can from the wreckage. Enduring imprisonment, torture, famine, dispossession and isolation, earning the suspicion, envy and hatred of both sides, resorting to double-dealing, chicanery, even murder, Tibbott weaves his way through the military and political morass in his all-consuming passion to survive. Shadow Lord is more than just a portrait of Tibbott Bourke, it is also a unique insight into one of the most profound periods of change, incorporating new unpublished manuscript material. Shadow Lord also presents new information on the descendents of Tibbott Bourke and on the legal controversy that surrounds his title, Viscount Mayo, to the present day"--Provided by publisher.
