DRESCHER, UWE aka Klaus Stoertebeker
Klaus Stoertebeker, whose real name was Nikolaus Storzenbecher, was a German who lived in the 14th century. Stoertebeker led group of freebooters, who captured Danish ships during the war by order of the Germans. In one way he was a privateer, but he also captured the ships of England, Holland, Russia and even German ships itself. In 1401 Stoertebeker and 71 of his companions were caught near Helgoland Island by a trick. A fisherman whom Stoertebeker granted protection turned out to be the enemy. Stoertebeker was executed in Hamburg in 1400.
