Why was the pirate Blackbeard particularly feared?

0

As well as being heavily armed with knives, cutlasses and pistols, Blackbeard tried to make himself look especially fearsome in order to intimidate his victims. He had wild eyes and a mass of thick tangled hair. Into his hair he twisted pieces of fuse which he set alight during battles, so that his face was surrounded with smoke to create an even more terrifying image.
