Vice Admiral William Bligh, FRS, RN (9 September 1754 – 7 December 1817) was an officer of the British Royal Navy and a colonial administrator. Three historic mutinies occurred under his command: The HM Bounty, the Nore and the Run Rebillion in New South Whales. Yet he was considered a capital seaman and good comander.
