Captain William Kidd was one of the most famous and fearsome pirates of the Spanish Main, but he was betrayed by a crew member and charged with piracy by the Crown. In our picture he seems unimpressed by the fact that he is on trial for his life, and disingenuously proclaims his innocence, which clearly astonishes the court who are well acquainted with his notorious reputation.
