2. Marshall D. Teach
Blackbeard is the Captain of the Blackbeard Pirates, and he became a Yonkō after Whitebeard’s death. His bounty is still unknown, and he possesses two Devil Fruit. He became the first person ever to eat two Devil Fruits. Teach’s name and epithet is taken from real pirate, Blackbeard. However, Blackbeard’s real name was Edward Teach, and not Marshall Teach. The first name was given to Edward Newgate.
Thatch is the former member of the Whitebeard Pirates, and was killed by Teach. He was the Fourth Division Commander of the Whitebeard Pirates, and was also a Swordsman. Similar to Blackbeard and Whitebeard, Thatch was also named after the real life pirate, Blackbeard, also known as Edward Thatch or Edward Teach.
Is there any other One Piece characters who are named after real pirates?
