Throughout the course of history, Oak Island has been frequently visited by the pirates due to its position and this is the reason why the theory about the hidden pirate treasure is among the most common ones. They have stayed here and they have even been reported to leave their treasure here and come back for it. It is also known that two pirates, Captain James Anderson, and Captain Kidd actually lived there and that they even buried the treasure on the island. More precisely, Lot 26 was inhabited by Captain James Anderson. Apart from these two, it is also believed that Blackbeard was the one who buried the treasure.

They are surrounded by veils of mysteries and various theories around the globe, so, it is not strange to mention them her as well. The reason for this is the finding of various symbols connected to them, and they have been known to travel to this part of the world, i.e. North America so that they would conceal some religious artifacts.

Marie Antoinette

It may seem a bit strange, but there is even a theory that the famous jewels of Marie Antoinette are buried somewhere on the island. The theory is that the lady-in-waiting got the jewels from the last Queen of France and buried them here.

Type of Treasure?

It has been speculated for a long time about the type of treasure buried on the island. So, what treasure lies there? Some people think that the biggest possibility for the treasure is that those are the jewels of Marie Antoinette, who wanted to hide them from the revolutionaries due to their splendor, and the fact that they famously disappeared after the Revolution goes in favor of this. On the other hand, some people speculate that even the Holy Grail, may be hidden there and that the Knights Templar has hidden it somewhere on the Island, or even in the Money Pit. Furthermore, the theory is that the Knights of Templar have even buried the Ark of Covenant on the island. One theory even proposes that even Shakespeare’s manuscripts are placed on the island. These are important since there are various theories about Shakespeare’s identity and that it was Sir Francis Bacon who wrote them in the 16th century.

The British & Pirate

The two most common theories about the type of treasure claim it to be the British one that was originally taken in Havana, Cuba, in 1762 and placed so that they are protected against the American Revolutionaries. Another is that Captain Kidd buried vast treasure here in the 17th century. The pirate treasure is one of the most common theories and the discovered stone in the 19th century just favors this theory.


These are all theories so far, but, no one has ever found any tangible clue and evidence regarding the treasure that is allegedly buried on Oak Island.
