Faire Period

From RogueWiki

The vast majority of Renaissance faires and festivals are set during the Tudor Period (1485-1603), which includes the Elizabethan Era (1558-1603). The most common speech and garb for renaissance festivals falls within the Elizabethan Era, and thus overlaps with the early years of the classic era of piracy in the Caribbean (1560-1730).

The Colorado Renaissance Festival takes place in the 16th Century (specifically 1598?), placing it late in the Elizabethan Era, and late as most faires go.

The "Golden Age of Piracy" is academically defined as the period 1650-1730, which begins after the Tudor Period, but which encompasses most of our current portrayal of pirates in popular culture.
