Mustaparta - The Blackbeard
Before there were borders drawn in the Tornio river, there lived a hardworking but poor people in Tornio Valley whom the wealthy upper class oppressed. It was against this unjustice and greed Iisakki Mustaparta with his fellow peasants built a ship with a deck, something the merchant bourgeoisie had denied them to do. With this ship they sailed to Stockholm, with wood tar as their cargo and brought back grain for the starved people. The lawless peasants were eventually rehabilitated and Mustaparta was elected as council man where he kept on defending the oppressed.
