Jacquotte Delahaye is the subject of many legendary stories. To escape her pursuers, she faked her own death and took on a male alias, living as a man for many years. Upon her return, she became known as "back from the dead red" because of her striking red hair.

She led a gang of hundreds of pirates, and with their help took over a small Caribbean island in the year of 1656, which was called a "freebooter republic".

Several years later, she died in a shootout while defending it.

Though no official documentation of any children exists, it was rumoured she had a daughter named Dinah Delahaye, who shared her mothers striking red hair, and who grew up to become a master swordswoman, and pirate commanding a small fleet of ships.
