Admiral Sir Henry Morgan (Hari Morgan in Welsh), (ca. 1635 August 25, 1688) was a Welsh privateer, who made a name in the Caribbean as a leader of privateers. He was one of the most notorious and successful privateers from Wales, and one of the most dangerous pirates that lurked in the Spanish Main.
