The pirate republic of Libertalia may never have existed, but the communities that the pirates founded between the end of the seventeenth and the beginning of the eighteenth century in Madagascar were from many points of view conscious experiments of radical democracy. Or rather, proto-Enlightenment political experiments that saw the active participation of the Malagasy populations, including women. A story of magic, naval raids, kidnapped princesses, fictional realms and fake ambassadors that underlies the modern conception of freedom.
