"She looks like a ghost ship! Aye, risen from the dead to sink us!"
―The Jackdaw's crew upon spotting HMS Prince.[src]

HMS Prince

HMS Prince was one of five legendary ships encountered by the pirate Edward Kenway in the Caribbean during the early 18th century.

History

A Royal Navy warship, HMS Prince was engaged by Edward Kenway's Jackdaw south of Saint-Domingue in the midst of a ghostly fog. The fog, along with the ship's black and tattered sails, gave her the appearance of a ghost ship; a naturally superstitious lot, sailors were terrified at the likeness and the resemblance even frightened the crew of the Jackdaw. In battle, she utilized mortars and attempted to conceal itself within the fog. Eventually, HMS Prince was sunk by the Jackdaw, and Kenway claimed the 20,000 reales worth of gold aboard the ship.[1]

Behind the scenes

The HMS Prince is one of the four legendary ship battles in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Its tattered black sails, its ghostly theme, and the constant fog surrounding the ship makes it closely resemble the Black Pearl from the Disney film series Pirates of the Caribbean. Out of all legendary ships in the game, its model was the only one not re-used for the legendary ships in Assassin's Creed: Rogue.
