Keelhauling Pirate Torture – Worst Punishments in the History of Mankind

Keelhauling Pirate Torture - Worst Punishments in the History of Mankind



Back during the ancient world and the Middle Ages the ship represented the pinnacle of the military. The ship was a sacred thing, and as time went by it was those who ruled the waves that became the most powerful nations. But during The Age of Discovery when ships were discovering new worlds and crossing vast oceans, life was tough for sailors. The Age of Discovery was also an era of mutiny. When an aggrieved crew turned against their captain all h e l l could break loose and there was nowhere to hide. That’s why some particularly horrifying punishments were reserved for out-of-control sailors. Welcome to Keelhauling.

I would've killed the captain for trying to punish me especially if i knew i had the right disobey. I dont take orders from anyone anyway unless i respect them.

Remember the ship would usually be moving when this happens which would tauten the rope forcing the sailor to bump against the hull. Anyone who's ever trolled for fish would know this and easy to replicate – drop a hook overboard along the gunwales and bring the pole tip around to the other side of the boat and reel in. Doing this in a motionless boat let alone moving will produce this result and you'll hear it following the hull.

Not surprising that it happened under a Dutch flag. They did cannibalize their prime minister, Johan De Witt.

If you dropped them in the water how would you get the rope around the bottom of the ship to pull him up the other side? He would have to swim under the ship so you could pull him up against it

In the series Black Sails season 4 , you see this happening at 3:25 … its a hard scene to witness and lasts wayy too long and its cringe worthy : / .

Fudge… I once went to Coron, Philippines. Full of beautiful beaches, however painful to walk on water due to corals and rocks. I can't imagine my full body colliding with all those sharp objects.

You guys gotta watch the show Black Sails. Hands down one of my favorite shows, but to the point they keelhaul one of the characters in the show and it was absolutely brutal. Probably one of the most brutal things I’ve ever seen…

I don't like that this channel pretends to be some educational informational fact-checked organization and yet you have things like this guy rubbing himself at 6:40
