Charlotte Badger, also known as Lady Goldeye, was a notorious pirate captainess, buccaneer, fugitive, stalwart charlatan with a taste for wealth, and an associate of the British Brotherhood and founding member of the New Zealand Brotherhood of Assassins.
Charlotte was home-born on January 14, 1778, in Worcestershire, England as the second child and only daughter of Thomas and Anne Badger. Unfortunately for the Badger family, their firstborn Jonathan died at 8 months of an unknown illness, presumably attributed to a precursor genetic defect as the child would constantly scream and stare without blinking. The parents believed their son was possessed by a demon as punishment for abandoning the sanctity of the church. Charlotte was baptized, albeit late, as her family found God, on July 31, 1778, in the parish of St John.
