Spoiler (click to reveal)
If you look at your reference card for non-winter rounds you will see that resolving the event comes BEFORE determining if someone won the game. As such the Pirate King will attack the higher ranked person tied for the win. IF he gets the glory (by the Pirates rolling less than 2 or less sucesses) he will win the game.
Note that the glory is only if the Pirates FAIL their endeavor by rolling LESS than the required amount. At which point the card is destroyed.
