    corsair :
    1. A pirate, especially along the Barbary Coast.
    2. A swift pirate ship, often operating with official sanction.


    but it's weird because the english definition of a privateer is what a corsair is supposed to be ^^"..... (at least the 2nd definition is nearer from the original than the 1st )
    so i guess the english gave the name corsair to the first thing they thought of (beside "privateer" because they already had this name), so it means "pirate of the barbary coast" now >.>
    XD

    ok, ok, I'll try to explain...
    corsair is a pirate, who serves his king or a queen (so in the other words, he must give all the treasures he gets from piracy to the royal treasury) and it's a monarch, who take responsibility
    priveteer is a pirate, who has a permission from government to defeat other pirates, it's the privateer who takes responsibility and treasures :>
    pirate is a pirate

    i prefer your definitions over what the dictionnary gave me

    but the corsair only give a part of the treasures to the king ^^
    and can the privateer and the corsair be considered pirates ?? because they are on the government's side...

    huh, you've been reading too much One Piece Who said that the gov. can't have some fun too? Besides it was good for both gov. (money) and pirates (no punishment. And they were doing aht they liked to do i.e. killing, robbing, drinking rum...).

    that's why they are not really pirates, as pirates are supposed to be hunted by the government

    Black Beard: Edward Teach
    Zoro: Francois l'Ollonais, and the Mexican Robin Hood, Zorro
    Jango: Michael Jackson
    Bartholomew Kuma: Bartholomew Roberts (AKA Black Bart)
    Crocodile: based LOOSELY off of the stereotypical pirate captain, Hook
    Donquixote Doflamingo: Don Quixote de la Mancha (by name only)
    Usopp: named after Aesop, the fable teller (uso means lie, so it's kind of a portmanteau and pun)
    Franky and Patty: body design based off of the legendary Popeye
    Eneru: based off of the Storm God, Raijin, as well as loose nods to Buddha and Son Goku, the Monkey King
    Baskerville: based off of the 3-headed knight from Monty Python skits
    Bellamy the Hyena: Samuel Bellamy
    Also Enel was based on rapper Eminem and also Usopp's long nose is an allusion to Pinocchio.

    Axe-Hand Morgan: The pirate Henry Morgan.
    Lafitte: Jean Lafitte
    Jesus Burgess: Samuel Burgess
    Alvida: Alvida the Princess of Gotland (Sweden) who turned pirate.
    The Shichibukai: Loosey based on privateers of old Europe and the concept is based on the movie Seven Samurai.

    that's why they are not really pirates, as pirates are supposed to be hunted by the government
    A pirate is someone who robs or commits illegal violence at sea, privateers still did that just not to any ships that belonged to the country that employed them.
