"[[http://en.QueenOfTheBlackCoast is a ConanTheBarbarian tale by RobertEHoward.

The story begins in Argos, with [[InMediasRes Conan fleeing for the docks, and the law in hot pursuit]]. He leaps aboard a merchant vessel, making good his escape, where he is welcomed by the captain - an infamous PirateGirl named Bêlit has been terrorizing the coastline, and strong warriors like Conan are in particular demand for protection from the pirates.

Naturally, before long said pirates attack the ship, and Conan slays numerous crew before Bêlit herself intervenes - not by fighting Conan, but by seducing him. The two [[LoveAtFirstSight fall in love]] almost immediately, finding in each other a kindred spirit in a world where they are outsiders. They ravage the coastline together, their combined martial prowess so great that they become nearly legendary icons of piracy, earning Conan the nickname Amra (The Lion) which would stick with him for the rest of his days, and by which many would later remember him.

Then, Bêlit suggests an adventure up a deadly and forbidden jungle river, to a mythical city of ruins where great treasure is said to wait for anyone brave (or stupid) enough to enter, setting up a confrontation with worse [[EldritchAbomination horrors]] than even they had imagined.

Renowned not only as one of Howard's best stories, but as one of the greatest examples of pulp fiction and heroic fantasy ever written. Not only is the narrative smooth flowing and well polished, but Howard's [[PurpleProse penchant for poetry]] reaches its zenith. Bêlit herself is among Howard's best known characters despite only appearing in this one story - she's been named among the best female pirates in fiction, and was a major inspiration for the character of Valeria in the 1982 Conan film.
