A pirate-king or -queen is an extremely successful pirate who has amassed the wealth and loyalty of their followers necessary to rule their own realms as minor potentates. Certain states and kingdoms secretly sponsor pirate-kings on the condition that, while free to waylay all other shipping, they ignore their own vessels. In exchange, the pirate-kings are allowed clandestine access to the ports and markets of their sponsoring powers, thus allowing a pirate-king and his hoard to flourish.

The most infamous of all pirate-kings are those of the Brigandine States.
