Yes, pirates abducted everyone on Gozo bar a handful of really old and infirm people, yet those ruthless kidnappers had leaders in Rais Dragut – also known as Turgot Reis – and Sinan Pashu who considered themselves to be honourable semi-royalty. They took commissions from Suleiman the Magnificent. They were no swash-buckling Hollywood Johnny Depp caricatures. As you can see by this magnificent portrait of Rais Dragut. However, they did kill thousands and by any era’s standards of civilised behaviour were cruel and evil. Xaghra’s Revenge explores aspects of their psyche too.
Gozo is beautiful today, and was probably magnificent 6,000 years ago when ancient people of unknown origins built the ancient buildings we assume were temples. It holds a savage yet awe-inspiring past. I would love to live there.
